A Monroe County man is charged with 1st degree intentional homicide and several other crimes, following the death of a 3-year-old boy earlier this year.

Thirteen criminal counts, including child abuse causing great bodily harm, have been filed against 35-year-old Marcus Anderson of Tomah.

Anderson was arrested in May, after emergency responders tried to revive the child at the suspect’s home.

Investigators say the boy died of blunt force trauma.

Before formal charges were filed on Tuesday, Anderson had been accused of reckless homicide in the child’s death.

According to court records, Anderson already had trials for reckless driving and car theft scheduled this summer.
