FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - A Fond du Lac man avoids prison for causing the death of his ex-girlfriend’s 18-month-old daughter.

24-year-old Tyler Jackson was put on 10 years of probation Monday, after he struck a plea that convicted him of a reduced charge of second-degree reckless homicide.

Jackson first told authorities that 2-year-old Chloe Gessner fell down a half-dozen stairs last December, while following him to his basement.

Doctors at Milwaukee Children’s Hospital said the girl suffered a severe brain hemorrhage, and she was medically brain dead.

Jackson later admitted to police that he was playing an “airplane game” by holding the girl from one of her arms and legs – and she might have hit the back of her head on a love seat.

A sheriff’s detective told a judge Monday that he was still skeptical about that story. The defense insisted it was nothing more than a tragic accident
