Wyoming Man Indicted for Murder of 2-Year-Old is a Police Officer
ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) — A grand jury has indicted a Green River man on a first-degree murder charge in the 2009 death of a 2-year-old boy in his care.
34-year-old Jacob Anglesey called emergency crews March 9, 2009, and told them the boy, Konnor Allen, was unresponsive following a fall. The boy had suffered head trauma and died the following day.
(K2 Radio News has discovered additional information after correspondent Tracie Perkins discovered and verified information not released in the indictment. Namely that Anglesey is an officer in the Green River Police Department.)
An investigation did not lead to charges at the time, but the case remained open with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation. In 2015, DCI agents presented evidence to the Sweetwater County Attorney's Office they say shows Anglesey was inconsistent when describing how the boy was injured. Medical reports stating the injuries were caused by non-accidental trauma also were included.
