Motion To Dismiss Denied In Infants Death Case

A Fond du Lac County judge Monday denied a motion to dismiss charges against the 29-year-old Bellwood, Illinois man suspected of killing his girlfriend’s 14-month-old baby boy. Judge Daniel English ruled on the motion to dismiss the complaint when Daniel Griffin was arraigned. Griffin pled not guilty to the charges he’s facing for the July 7th incident at the Maplewood Commons Apartments in Fond du Lac that led to the toddler’s death and serious injuries for his twin brother.  Griffin allegedly stood on the baby’s chest and hurt the other infant.  The baby’s 24-year-old mother, Airrealle Smart is also facing charges for the incident and has a jury trail scheduled next month.
