Wabeno man convicted of child abuse after accepting plea deal

by

CRANDON, WI (WTAQ) - A plea deal was struck Tuesday for a Wabeno man in a child abuse case.

Online court records show Brandon Brunette pled guilty to a child abuse charge, while four other counts, including attempted homicide, were dropped. 

Authorities say Brunette threw his girlfriend's 19-month-old son across a room into a wall or TV stand. That caused the child to suffer a fractured skull.

As part of the deal, prosecutors reserved the right to re-file homicide charges if the boy dies before October 18. That's a year and a day after the crime.

Brunette will be sentenced October 14.
