Man accused of breaking 2 bones in leg of 2-year-old
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Authorities have accused a Lincoln man of breaking two bones in the right leg of a 2-year-old girl.
Lancaster County Court records say 25-year-old Benjamin Stutzman is charged with felony intentional child abuse. Jail records say he remained in custody Tuesday, pending $50,000 bail. The court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for Stutzman. His next court hearing is scheduled for March 26.
The records say Stutzman told an officer he’d slapped the little girl and then grabbed and jerked her leg in anger after she began urinating while he changed her diaper on Jan. 5.
