DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — A 21-year-old Iowa man has been charged with causing serious injuries to a toddler earlier this summer.
Dubuque authorities say Troy Laufenberg was arrested there Saturday evening.
He is accused of causing 18-month-old Myah Larson’s brain damage on July 15. Doctors say her injuries are consistent with shaken baby syndrome.
Laufenberg faces a child endangerment charge. He’s also charged with possessing drugs and drug paraphernalia.
He was being held Sunday in the Dubuque County Jail.
