SPARTA — A Tomah man has
pleaded guilty to neglecting his infant son which caused
the baby's death.
Tralmer agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors, which
could result in a maximum 12½ years in prison. Tralmer
was originally charged with first-degree reckless homicide
and child abuse causing great bodily harm in the death of
three-month-old Chad Tralmer. A conviction could have
meant up to 60 years in prison.
Prosecutors say Tralmer was
under the influence of marijuana when the baby hit his
head, started choking and was dropped on the floor. The
infant died at the hospital two days later.
The La Crosse Tribune says
Tralmer entered the plea in Monroe County yesterday.
Sentencing is set for Dec. 18.
