Waupaca police arrested Joseph A. Jackson, 28, Tuesday for the death of a 2-year-old boy that occurred earlier this year.
They will be referring Jackson to the Waupaca County district attorney’s office for charges of reckless homicide.
Shortly after 8:15 a.m. Sunday, May 25, Waupaca police were dispatched to 630 Elm St. for a report of a 2-year-old boy who was unresponsive and not breathing.
Waupaca Area Gold Cross Ambulance also responded to the scene. The boy was transported to Riverside Medical Center, then taken by helicopter to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Green Bay where he died.
In June, Jackson was charged with felony child abuse and disorderly conduct.
More details regarding the case will appear in the Oct. 23 Waupaca County Post.
