Charges of first-degree reckless homicide are pending against a man in Portage County.
Investigators say 34-year-old Meyer Willkom of Plover was caring for the six-month-old child when it died. A specific cause of death hasn’t been released, but doctors determined it wasn’t due to natural causes. Willkom is not the infant’s biological father, but the mother is his girlfriend. Her name hasn’t been released. Willkom is being held in the Portage County Jail.
