Who Is Jaxon Liedl? Details Wisconsin Infant Died 10-Year-Old Girl Stomped Him To Death Daycare

A 10-year-old Wisconsin girl has been charged with the death of a 10-month-old baby after she allegedly dropped the child on the floor and stomped on his head.

First responders were called to a licensed daycare home near Chippewa Falls on Oct. 30, where they found Jaxon Liedl unresponsive and bleeding from his head, according to Fox News. The baby was rushed to HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital and then airlifted to Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare hospital, where he died Nov. 1.

"They had mentioned what are we going to do if his heart stops, and it caught me completely off guard," the baby's father, Nate Liedl, told ABC7. "I had sent a couple messages out to family to let them know that Jaxon's not going to make it. I remember, I broke down out there pretty bad. Yeah, it really hit hard."

Recently, a judge who took over the case unsealed records that reveal more details about how Jaxon died.

The doctor who treated the 10-month-old told Chippewa County Sheriff James Kowalczyk that the baby's injuries were not likely accidental as they were “consistent with a heavy force." 

The unconcealed criminal complaint reported that Jaxon had “bilateral skull fractures and bilateral subdural hematoma.” It also said that "a tread pattern on (the girl’s) shoes appeared to match the patterned bruising on the head of the victim."

According to Kowalczyk, the young girl dropped the baby, who hit his head on a footstool and began to cry. The girl said she panicked and stomped on the infant's head to quiet him.

Then she put him back in his crib and went outside to play with the other children. Jaxon's injuries were discovered soon after.

The girl, who lives with foster parents at the house where the daycare is located, "confessed to her involvement in the situation," Kowalczyk said. She is currently being charged as an adult with first-degree intentional homicide.

Jaxon's father said he waited his whole life to have a son. 

"As opposed to seeing it as a 10-year-old girl, I saw it as the person who killed my son," Liedl said. "And she, in my opinion, deserved to be in shackles or handcuffs. She's a criminal. I waited 37 years for my own little baby boy," he said. "I was extremely lucky because he didn't cry, no fussing, he was happy smiles all the time."

The distraught father said he was not able to spend as much time with his son as he wanted due to a custody battle and is heartbroken there is not another chance to see him. He said his goal is to make the girl who allegedly killed his son to see him.

"Missing out on those first three months was hard enough," he told ABC 7. "And then, to be granted only eight hours after that, I feel like they essentially robbed me of time with Jaxon. Now I'm not going to be able to get any of it back. If it helps one father get more time with their child, then that's good."

The girl's biological parents were with her when she first appeared in court, handcuffed and wearing a leather restraint around her waist. Authorities said she was removed from her home in September but did not disclose the reason for her placement in foster care. She sobbed throughout the 10-minute bond hearing, the New York Times reported.

 

She is scheduled to return to court on Jan. 17.
