A two day trial is expected to begin November 6 for a 22-year-old Marshfield man accused of abusing his 11-week-old child.

According to the criminal complaint, an investigation began Oct. 24, 2013. The child was examined at the Marshfield Clinic on Nov. 7 and found to have multiple fractures.

According to court documents, a doctor described the child's injuries as non-accidental. The infant had two fractures to its left arm, three fractured ribs, and a possible fracture to its leg. The doctor said the injures to its limbs may have been the result of pulling or yanking. The injuries to the ribs may have been the result of squeezing or pushing on the chest captivity.

The baby's father, Sebastian Suchomel, said he may have swaddled the baby too tightly. He also stated when the child was about a month old, he grabbed the baby's left arm and leg and flipped the baby over. According to the criminal complaint, that's when Suchomel said he heard a pop and the child's arm when limp, and continued to be limp.

Suchomel remains in custody in the Wood County Jail. He remains behind bars on a $10,000 cash bond.
