Judge says homicide case against baby sitter can proceed
WAUSAU - A judge has refused to throw out the case against a Wisconsin baby sitter accused of killing a 2-month-old boy and then pretending he was alive when she gave the baby back to his mother.

Marathon County Circuit Court Judge LaMont Jacobson ruled Friday there was enough evidence to proceed with the case against 28-year-old Marissa Tietsort, of Wausau.

A criminal complaint alleges Tietsort caused the baby's death in October, then put him in a snowsuit and car seat and returned him to his mother " without telling her the child was dead.

Tietsort is charged with first-degree intentional homicide. She remains in the Marathon County Jail on a $500,000 cash bond.

The state has 30 days to file paperwork for the charges against her.
