BARABOO, Wis. — A child care provider is on trial in Sauk County for the death of a 4-month-old child.
Jeannette Janusiak is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the 2011 death of Peyton Shearer. Prosecutors say the baby died from three blows to the head. The Reedsburg woman says the child fell off a bed and her head on an open nightstand drawer.
A criminal complaint says a doctor who examined the child told police the baby was brain-dead after suffering skull fractures from blows to the head.
WISC-TV (http://bit.ly/1pfhpTX ) reports jury selection and opening statements were done Monday.
