OSSEO, WI (WTAQ) - Police in west central Wisconsin expect charges next week against a 22-year-old woman for the death of her boyfriend’s young daughter.
Amanda Butts was arrested Thursday, after 22-month-old Alexis Behlke died just over a month ago.
Osseo Police said Butts was caring for the toddler when she stopped breathing. She was taken to a hospital where she died.
Butts used to live in Osseo, and was arrested at her new home in the Jackson County town of Garfield.
Authorities say she faces a possible reckless homicide charge in neighboring Trempealeau County, where the death occurred.
