BRAINERD, Minn. — A Brainerd man is accused of seeking to poison an newborn with antifreeze.
Twenty-3-12 months-old Jeffrey Thomas is charged with tried murder and first-level attack. A prison criticism alleges Thomas attempted to poison the 4-month-vintage lady after his spouse as a result of upset that he may have fathered the kid with some other lady. A paternity take a look at has now not been finished, but Thomas says he’s now not the daddy.
The Megastar Tribune says the baby was once placed with Thomas shortly after she used to be born following a child coverage proceeding in Carlton County. The criticism says Thomas and his spouse took the infant to the sanatorium after she turned into in poor health Jan. 18. Government say health facility tests confirmed the newborn had ingested ethylene glycol, commonly found in antifreeze.
Thomas is within the Crow Wing County Jail on $750,000 bond.
