Glencoe man pleads guilty to assaulting baby in his care

A Glencoe man recently decided to plead guilty to assaulting an infant rather than face a trial. Now, he awaits sentencing in McLeod County District Court.
Timothy Daniel Miller pleaded guilty Aug. 15 to first-degree assault with great bodily harm of a 5½-month old child in his care in January. A trial was scheduled to begin the following day and Assistant McLeod County Attorney Dan Provencher had refused to offer Miller, 24, any kind of deal to plead guilty to a lesser charge.
“We were ready for trial,” Provencher said.
Miller was charged with shaking the baby while serving as the lone caretaker in the house at the time. Police and medics found the child, unresponsive with shallow breathing, in a house on Baldwin Avenue Jan. 4. Doctors found the child had significant brain damage after suffering a subdural hematoma.
