Mattoon Man Accused Of Throwing Baby Faces Felony Charges

(Charleston, IL) -- A 26-year-old Mattoon man is facing felony charges after allegedly slinging an infant as the child slept in a bassinet. Daryl Winnett is said to have been drunk Sunday when his wife called the cops after he threw a couple of inanimate objects during a rage, including the bassinet. Winnett and his wife don’t believe he knew the tiny nine-month-old was in the bassinet when he heaved it. The baby suffered some minor bruising on its head and side but was treated and released from a local hospital. Winnett is due back in court July 29th to answer aggravated battery charges. He’s currently barred from seeing the child and not allowed to return to his home.
