Man Charged with Abusing Baby

A Charles City man accused of breaking the bones of an infant has been charged with two counts of child endangerment resulting in serious injury.

Prosecutors say 21-year-old William Khuns squeezed the infant in August until the baby’s ribs broke and twisted the baby’s arm behind its back in September until he heard a pop. Police say the baby suffered nine broken bones.

Online records show a preliminary hearing for Khuns has been set for March Friday.
