Wausau father faces nearly 25 years in prison for the death of his son
WAUSAU - A Wausau father could face nearly 25 years in prison for the death of his 14- year- old son Bryden.
Robert Glazner is charged with second degree reckless homicide and made an initial appearance at Marathon County Court Wednesday. Bryden's grandmother found the 14- year- old dead in his room last August. A criminal complaint shows investigators believe Bryden's death could have been prevented if his Type 1 diabetes was better treated or managed by his father Robert.  

 A forensic pathologist found Bryden died due to diabetic complications. Social services and doctors reported that Bryden's father Robert resisted taking diabetic education classes since his son's diagnosis in 2014. Robert ignored Bryden's signs of illness in days leading up to his death. Robert was aware his son's sugar levels needed to be checked frequently throughout the day. 

However, on the day of Bryden's death detectives observed that Bryden's glucometer, the device used to check Bryden's sugar levels hadn't been used for two days. Robert will be back in court later this month for his preliminary hearing.
