WI - Trey Burgess, 4, dies of head injuries, mom's BF charged, 18 April 2015A Waldo man has been charged with reckless homicide in the death of his fiancee's 4-year-old child in the town of Mitchell.
Armando Aguirre, 31, was charged with second-degree reckless homicide, a charge that carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and 10 years extended supervision. Aguirre also has a repeat offense enhancer as a result of three past misdemeanor convictions: two for battery and one for resisting or obstructing an officer. Aguirre was also being held on a probation hold as a result of a past OWI conviction.
According to the criminal complaint: Aguirre was watching his fiancee's 4-year-old son as well as his own 3-year-old son while she was picking up her other kids from school Friday afternoon. Aguirre said his son asked him to "spin" him around, at which point Aguirre swung around his son by the legs. The 4-year-old also asked to be swung. Aguirre told investigators that he spun the 4-year-old as well, but the child's head hit a carpeted floor rug with a "glancing blow."

District Attorney Joe DeCecco said the charges came about because of the inconsistency between Aguirre's statements and the medical examiner, who said the injuries were along the same lines as those caused by a fourth-floor drop.
"We believe his account as far as what he was doing," DeCecco said. "But we think maybe he slipped, maybe he miscalculated, but that child hit the floor really hard, and that's what caused the ultimate conditions that led to his death."
