Media Release - Father Arrested for 2013 Death of Infant

An arrest has been made for the death of a two-month-old stemming from a 2013 death investigation. Bradly Aaron Wise, 23, has been arrested for causing the death of his infant son on April 14, 2013.

On April 14, 2013, Bradly called 911 to report that his son, Brock, was not breathing. Brock was treated at the scene and transported to the hospital, but did not survive. At the time, Bradly said he put Brock down after feeding him and found him gasping for air 15 to 20 minutes later. Bradly was the only person at home at the time of Brock's death.

At the time of autopsy, hemorrhages and other indications of head trauma were found on the infant. Due to lack of supporting information at that time, the cause of death was ruled undetermined. A subsequent medical review determined the injury was due to blunt force trauma. The extent of the injuries could not have been caused by a two- month-old infant.

Based on the new conclusions, Bradly Wise has been arrested and charged with one count of First Degree Murder a class 1 Felony and one count of Child Abuse a class 2 Felony.
