SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — A man accused of causing the death of his fiancee’s 4-year-old son will stand trial in Sheboygan County.
Armando Aguirre says he was playing with the child and swinging him around by the legs when his head hit the carpet. But prosecutors say injuries to the boy aren’t consistent with Aguirre’s explanation.
In court Wednesday, a Sheboygan County sheriff’s detective testified Aguirre initially said the child sustained a “glancing blow” to the head, but later said the boy may have hit the floor harder than he first thought.
Sheboygan Press Media reports Aguirre’s attorney, Kirk O’Bear, noted the detective said the child wasn’t bleeding and there were no other outward signs of a severe injury.
