"RACINE — An engaged Racine couple was charged Wednesday for physical abuse of a child and child neglect after their 33-day-old son ended up with four head fractures and bleeding on the brain on Halloween.
"Gest G. Wangsness, 30, and Krystal L. Hall, 25, both of 5300 block of Charles Street, took their son to the hospital just after midnight Monday, according to the criminal complaints.
"Hall had allegedly noticed that the boy's head was misshapen and decided to take the boy to Ascension All Saints Hospital. Medical staff then reportedly told the family the boy needed to be treated at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Wauwatosa and the family was transported via ambulance.
"When police arrived at the hospital, they were informed by a doctor that the baby had four fractures to his skull, a broken rib, three broken bones in his legs, the complaint said. The doctor also told police that these injuries could only occur from abuse.
"Hall and Wangsness were interviewed separately. Hall reportedly told police that she was on maternity leave and was with the boy 90 percent of the day since he was born. When informed of the injuries, Hall allegedly did not know how the injuries could have occurred."

These bastards were probably abused as children themselves. And the beat goes on.
