A 10-year-old Wisconsin girl has been charged in the death of a 6-month old infant after police say she accidentally dropped the baby, then panicked and stomped on the child’s head.

District Attorney Wade Newell said the girl was in foster care at a home in Tilden, which also served as an in-home daycare, on October 30.

That’s where Wade said the girl accidentally dropped the 6-month-old baby boy. Wade said the girl told investigator the boy hit his head on a stool and started crying,

At that point Wade said the girl panicked causing injuries that resulted in the infant’s death.

“She stated she was holding the child and that’s when she dropped the child. The child hit its head on the footstool and then the child started crying and she panicked and didn’t know what to do and didn’t want to get into trouble and then she proceeded to stomp on the 6 month-old’s head,” Wade explained.
