Accused Baby Killer Bound Over
A Cheyenne man accused of killing his girlfriend's 6-month-old baby has been bound over to district court.
A preliminary hearing for 30-year-old Tyler Child was held Friday in Laramie County Circuit Court.
According to court documents, Child was watching his girlfriend's kids on June 30 when he called 911 to report that the baby boy didn't appear to be breathing. An autopsy ruled the boy's cause of death as a homicide.
Child is charged with involuntary manslaughter and could face up to 20 years if convicted. He is being held in the Laramie County Jail on a $25,000 cash bond.
