- A 34-year-old Kenosha man is charged with killing his 11-month-old daughter.
Russell Rose Jr. was charged Thursday with first-degree intentional homicide, aggravated battery, strangulation, arson and recklessly endangering safety. He is being held on $1 million bond.
Police say Rose was arrested Tuesday. Officers found the girl when they responded to a call in which a woman was screaming that someone had killed her baby. Police say the girl was severely bruised and her face was disfigured.
Firefighters responded after officers saw the suspect setting fire to curtains in his apartment.
The 27-year-old woman and the baby, Serenity Rose, were taken to an area hospital, where the girl was pronounced dead. The woman was treated for a swollen face and cuts to her hand.
