    WI - Aidyn Pine, 2, beaten to death, Butternut, 26 Aug 2014



    http://www.georgianewsday.com/news/r...ut-of-bed.html

    A Wisconsin man arrested for killing his girlfriend's two-year-old son claims the child's injuries were the result of the child 'falling out of bed' and 'falling at the park' eight days earlier.

    Duane Thomas Amos Jr., 27, of Butternut, took Aidyn Michael Pine, 2, to a Park Hills hospital on August 26 and told hospital personnel the child was wheezing. However, medical staff soon discovered that Pine had actually gone into cardiac arrest... The child was then airlifted to a Marshfield hospital, where he died on August 27...

    Amos, who had two previous felony convictions, is being held at Ashland County Jail with bail set at $200,000.

    Prebble reported his findings to law enforcement personnel. He said Aidyn had bruising on his face, both eyes were swollen and bruised, bruises on his left shoulder, bruises on the right side of his forehead, bruises on his back that appeared to be consistent with finger marks and additional internal trauma that caused Aidyn to go into cardiac arrest. Prebble said the history of injuries to the child that had been provided to medical staff were not consistent with the observed trauma.

    The child was transferred by helicopter to St. Joseph’s hospital in Marshfield where further tests showed that he had suffered multiple rib fractures, a collapsed lung, brain swelling, bleeding in the membranes between the brain and skull, bleeding in the retinas of both eyes and progressive herniation of the brain...

    After the child’s death, a forensic post mortem was conducted, and Dane County Medical Examiner Dr. Vincent Tranchide said he found signs of abuse to the child, including bruising that indicated strangulation, bite marks on the tongue, consistent with being hit and bruises on the ears consistent with being pinched, as well has head trauma consistent with violent, non accidental shaking of a child, non-accidental blunt force trauma or both. Ashland County Coroner Barbara Beeksma prepared the death certificate for AMP, listing he cause of death as homicide with the manner of death as “battered child syndrome — assaulted by others.”

    FELL OFF THE BED? Right. That little boy was beaten to a pulp! Where was the bed, on the roof? This turns my stomach.

    What a cutie pie he was, I just want to eat up those fat little cheeks. How could anyone want to harm him? I'm so sorry, Aidyn.

    Ashland County Circuit Court Judge Robert Eaton Friday found that probable cause to believe that a felony was committed in the death of two-year-old Aidyn M. Pine, who died on Aug. 27, after allegedly suffering what his death certificate called “battered child syndrome-assaulted by others...

    After Eaton found probable cause existed, he bound the case over for arraignment, which was held immediately, with Amos entering a plea of not guilty.

    Following the finding, Kressel moved to have some of the evidence in the case sealed because it contained “information of a minor victim.” Eaton granted the request, provisionally.

    Duane Thomas Amos, the Butternut man who had been charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of two-year-old Aidyn M. Pine, Tuesday instead entered a plea of guilty to a reduced charge of first-degree reckless homicide in Ashland County Circuit Court...

    Eaton accepted the amended information and found Amos guilty of the charge of first-degree reckless homicide and set Nov. 2, at 9 a.m. for sentencing.

    December 2015:

    Calling 28-year-old Duane Thomas Amos “a danger to society,” Ashland County Circuit Court Judge Robert Eaton Tuesday imposed a 30-year prison term on the Butternut man, to be followed by a 20-year extended supervision term in the death of two-year-old Aidyn Pine.

    .An autopsy showed extensive injuries that were consistent with abuse, including strangulation marks on his neck, marks on his ears consistent with being pinched, bleeding around he brain and bruise marks on his back that were consistent with fingertips. In addition, the child suffered 10 broken ribs, a collapsed lung, brain swelling, bleeding in the membranes between the brain and skull, bleeding in both retinas of the eyes, and progressive herniation of the brain....

    Williams also said the autopsy indicated the breakdown products of oxycodone in his system.
