RACINE - A Racine man is due back in court next Wednesday, after he was accused of breaking a baby’s legs and causing a possible skull fracture.
20-year-old Shavontae Daniels is charged with a felony count of child abuse. According to prosecutors, the girl’s mother asked Daniels to baby-sit the 13-week-old child last week – and when she returned home, the baby’s legs looked deformed. Doctors said the girl had a serious head injury, and X-rays revealed fractures to both her thigh bones. Daniels is quoted as telling police that he fell on the baby. At his next court appearance, a judge will decide if there’s enough evidence to order a trial.
A Bayfield man is due in court this morning, after he was charged with hitting a pedestrian with his vehicle in Duluth Minnesota before driving off. 29-year-old Robert Buehlman was charged yesterday with felony criminal vehicular operation. Police said he drove around two cars stopped at a red light before hitting the pedestrian, 33-year-old Ashen-Shugar-Aren Diehl. He then reportedly drove to a nearby lot and fled on foot. Police arrested Buehlman a short time later on Duluth’s Lake-Walk. Diehl was critically injured, but her nine-year-old daughter who was walking with her escaped injury. Diehl remains hospitalized in an intensive care unit with what authorities called life-threatening injuries.
