SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — A jury in Sheboygan County has convicted a young father of reckless homicide in the death of his infant son.
Prosecutors say 24-year-old Andrew Goldston caused the brain injuries that resulted in the March 2010 death of 1-month-old Leander. A jury deliberated for about five hours Thursday before deciding the child’s injuries were too severe for the accidental fall which Goldston described.
The Sheboygan Press says a first-degree reckless homicide conviction carries up to 40 years in prison. No sentencing date has been set.
