Officers with Two Rivers Police are investigating a child abuse case after a two-month old baby was taken to the hospital in critical condition on Wednesday. The Department was notified on Sunday that the infant had died.
Police were called to the north side of the city for the infant reportedly not breathing and pulseless. Two Rivers paramedics were able to resuscitate the baby. The infant was transported to Milwaukee Children's Hospital via helicopter.
The mother's 22-year-old boyfriend has been taken into custody and transported to the Manitowoc County Jail on charges of abuse of a child causing great bodily harm, failure to render aid, obstructing and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police say additional charges may be recommended against the boyfriend following the baby's death.
