Trial scheduled to begin today for Reymundo Perez in toddler death

STEVENS POINT, WI (WTAQ) - After two years of delays, a trial is finally scheduled to begin Tuesday morning for a central Wisconsin man accused of killing his girlfriend's two-year-old son.  

28-year-old Reymundo Perez is charged in Portage County with reckless homicide and felony child abuse in the death of Felix Espinosa-Villa.  

Authorities said Perez threw the toddler to the ground twice, because he would not stop crying. The youngster died two days later.  

The incident was reported in October of 2011 at the mobile home of Perez' girlfriend in Bancroft.

The trial has been delayed five times due to scheduling conflicts in getting expert witnesses to testify.

At a hearing last December, prosecutor Veronica Isherwood said the child's mother is concerned, because the case has been pending longer than her son was alive.  

Perez has been in jail since his arrest. He was moved to the Waupaca County Jail in January, after being at the Lincoln County Jail in Merrill.  

His trial is scheduled to last for eight days, running through June 12th in Stevens Point.
