CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming authorities have arrested a man in connection with the death of a 13-month-old Cheyenne boy. The search for the boy’s body is set to begin Monday at a landfill in northern Colorado.
Capt. Linda Gesell of the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office says authorities have arrested 23-year-old Logan Hunter Rogers of Cheyenne. Gesell says Rogers faces an initial court appearance Friday in Cheyenne on charges of manslaughter and reckless child endangering.
No lawyer has been listed yet as representing Rogers.
Authorities aren’t identifying the boy. Gesell said someone at the boy’s home told investigators that the body had been dumped into a trash container at a local community college. Trash from Cheyenne goes to a private landfill in Ault, Colorado.
