OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - A felony charge of first-degree reckless homicide has been filed Wednesday against a Town of Menasha man in connection with the death of a young girl.

26-year-old Ryan Jorgenson made his initial court appearance Wednesday afternoon in Winnebago County court.

On May 14, emergency responders were called to 1277 Cold Spring Road for a 3-year-old girl who had fallen down some stairs and suffered a seizure. But EMS called police due to the severity of the injuries.

The girl was eventually airlifted to Children's Hospital in Wauwatosa, where she died about a week later.

Jorgenson was taken into custody on May 14 on a probation hold. Back in January, Jorgenson was sentenced to 24 months probation after being convicted of battery. A charge of disorderly conduct was dropped as part of a plea deal, according to online court records.
