MAUSTON, WI (WSAU) - The trial continues in Mauston for a Milwaukee man accused of abusing a 5-year-old boy near Necedah almost two years ago.
Prosecution continued Thursday against 30-year-old Eric Roider, who is accused of causing head and genital injuries to the child while he was filling in for his girlfriend, who was the regular babysitter.
Witnesses Thursday included the girlfriend and the victim’s mother. The girlfriend testified that she found the boy unresponsive on the floor a short time after he had breathing problems and called 9-1-1.
The mother told the court the boy is doing well now, but has needed physical therapy and counseling since the incident.
More testimony is scheduled for Friday in Juneau County court before Judge John Roemer.
