Warrens man accused in death of infant son faces new child abuse charges
WARRENS, Wis. (WKBT) — A man charged in the death of his infant son is facing new child abuse charges, according to a criminal complaint.
Troy Steven Tralmer, 27, of Warrens, was charged Wednesday, with one count of physical abuse of a child between Nov. 16, 2012 and Nov. 15, 2014, the complaint said.
The child, who was born on Nov. 16, 2007, is the daughter of Tralmer’s former girlfriend.
Tralmer is accused of spinning the child a couple of times by the legs and arms and letting her go against cabinets and a bed frame, according to the Monroe County sheriff.
The complaint said the girl didn’t tell her mother about the incidents because she was afraid of what Tralmer would do to her.
PREVIOUS: The Tomah man arrested in the death of his three month-old son was charged with first degree reckless homicide in Monroe County court Tuesday.
Troy Tralmer, 26, called 911 on November 6th stating while giving the infant the Heimlich maneuver he accidentally dropped him on his head.
The infant was transported to Gundersen Health System and initial reports showed the child sustained a skull fracture, retinal hemorrhage, and a subdural hematoma.
The infant passed away from his injuries.
The complaint says Tralmer was home alone with the infant when he began choking.
Tralmer states that he “jostled” the baby in an attempt to awaken him during CPR, but said he did not shake him.
The autopsy report also showed 7 broken ribs that were in stages of healing that would have had to happen before the November 5th incident. There was also bruising on the head and chin area.
Authorities state the information received about the infant’s old and new injuries and Tralmer’s account do not “add up”.
The infant’s mother says the baby was acting normal that day before she had left and that she was not concerned about Troy as a parent.
