It started as a case of severe child abuse in Racine, but turned into a homicide with the death of a two-year-old girl. Racine Police reports indicate the mother of the victim showed up with the child at the emergency room at the local hospital, but staff found inconsistencies with her explanation of the little girl’s injuries.
Police were called, and eventually the 22-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man were taken in for questioning. It was later that her boyfriend was arrested for 1st Degree Reckless Homicide.
The woman is jailed for outstanding warrants not related to the death, while her other two children are in protective custody.
