Wichita Child Abuse Case Now a Murder



WICHITA - A three-year-old Wichita girl has died, and police suspect child abuse.

On Monday evening, emergency crews were called to the Falcon Pointe Apartments in the 4200 block of S. Hydraulic, where a child was not breathing. About an hour later, medical personnel notified police that she was a victim of possible child abuse. Emma Krueger was only able to survive for another two days; she died on Wednesday evening at Wesley Medical Center.

Upon her death, the girl's 24-year-old mother and the mother's 23-year-old boyfriend were re-booked on felony murder charges; they had originally been held for child abuse and child endangerment.

The little girl had suffered bruising and head trauma; police believe the abuse had been occurring for at least one month. This is Wichita's 10th homicide of 2014.

Family and friends of the victim have set up a Facebook page: Prayers For Emma.
