MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A southern Wisconsin man is due in court Friday for allegedly causing the death of his girlfriend's five-year-old son.
24-year-old Dakota Black of Oregon in Dane County was charged Wednesday with first-degree reckless homicide in the death of Brayden Turnbill.
Rescuers were called to a home in Sun Prairie on October 22nd, soon after the youngster was found to have bruises on his chest, and did not appear to be breathing.
A doctor told authorities that Brayden had brain injuries consistent with either an impact to his head, or violent shaking.
Black is in jail for violating a previous probation.
