Charge amended in Chippewa County infant murder case

Chippewa County (WQOW) – New development in the case of the 10-year-old girl accused of killing a baby in Chippewa County.

Prosecutors have now upped the charges against the girl. She was originally charged with reckless homicide, but the charge has now been amended to 1st degree intentional homicide.

The girl is charged in the October 2018 death of 6-month-old Jaxon Hunter. Earlier this year a judge found the girl is not competent to stand trial.

Another hearing is set for September.
