RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A half-million dollar bond was set Monday for a Racine County man charged in the death of his girlfriend’s three-year-old son.

Prosecutors said 26-year-old Marcus Johnson punched Hunter Wise in the mouth, whipped him, and burned him because the child defecated in his pants.

Johnson was caring for Hunter and two other children when the incident was reported last Friday. The victim’s mother was working at the time.

Johnson is charged with first-degree intentional homicide. A preliminary hearing is set for May 22nd, when a judge is expected to decide if there’s enough evidence to order a trial.
