WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. -

A Nekoosa man and a Racine woman are charged with physically abusing an 8-month-old boy.

Robert Winker, 27, and Kurstyn Bieneman, 20, are facing multiple felony charges in Wood County, including child neglect resulting in great bodily harm.

A criminal complaint said Bieneman and Winker were staying at a Nekoosa residence last August and were responsible for the care of the baby. The child's grandmother took the boy to the hospital after discovering injuries.

The Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune reported medical records show the baby had fractures in his wrist, legs, ankle and ribs. He also had a swollen eye, blood in his ear canals and bruises on his face.

A criminal complaint stated Winker told investigators Bieneman was physically rough with the baby. Bieneman said she saw Winker shake the child.
