A Kimball man has been arrested after the suspicious death of his son. The Kimball County Sheriff’s Office says 23-year-old Jeremy Erickson was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of felony child abuse resulting in death.
Erickson’s 15-month-old son Tristen was taken to Denver Children’s Hospital Tuesday with what the Sheriff’s Office says were “severe injuries he received while in the care of his father” in Dix, Nebraska.
Tristen died at the hospital Thursday. Erickson is being held at the Kimball County Jail on $100,000 bond. An autopsy will be performed Monday and Kimball County Attorney Dave Wilson says a decision on formal charges will be made after the results of the autopsy are known.
