A Monona man suspected of severely injuring a toddler this summer now faces more charges.
Clayton County prosecutor Al Heavens said he filed a charge of child endangerment causing serious bodily injury against 21-year-old Troy Laufenberg.
That stems from an incident in July, when officials found his girlfriend's daughter, 18-month-old Myah Larson, with severe injuries in the Monona apartment she shared with her mother Emily Voshell, Laufenberg and a baby the couple had together.
Laufenberg is also facing a charge of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, which Heavens said was meth, and two counts of child endangerment related to having meth in close proximity to the two children in the apartment.
Heavens said prosecutors have not yet ruled out filing charges against Voshell, though they're not filing any at this time.
Laufenberg's attorney filed a not guilty plea this week and requested a speedy trial. Heavens said that date will be set soon for sometime in the next three months.
