The heartbreaking murder case of Baby Wyllow continues as plea deals were offered to three people charged in connection with the infant’s death.
Kylie Marie Brewer, Jon-Paul Bogdanowich Jr. and Kaylie Ryan Gossett face murder and abuse charges in the February death of Brewer’s 6-month-old child.
The deals were made on Monday, Dec. 4, but details have not been released. The three suspects will make a court appearance at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 8.
One week prior to Wyllow’s Feb. 19 death,the Pima County Sheriff’s Department
was called to the residence for a welfare check. According to the court documents, Wyllow’s biological father requested the check after seeing social media posts in which Brewer allegedly discussed injecting drugs. The deputy found that Willow appeared to be in good health at the time.
Within a week, her condition changed drastically. When the baby arrived at a local hospital, doctors discovered she had fractures on both arms and legs, including a right arm that was “grossly” displaced, and blood in her mouth and nose. She had bruises on her head and marks all over her skin.
It’s a devastating case for doctors and law enforcement officers. The infant’s mother, Brewer, claims she was in the hospital with pneumonia from February 16-18, and Gossett and another woman were taking care of the child. Brewer said Gossett regularly babysat five to six days out of the week. Brewer and Bogdanowich claimed Wyllow had injuries including bruises on her head, bite marks and a cut between two weeks to a month before she died. Brewer claimed she never reported Gossett for these injuries because the woman threatened her and allegedly wouldn’t allow her to see Wyllow. She said Gossett threatened her and said she would tell the landlord, police, and the Department of Child Services
if Brewer ever reported the injuries.
Gossett told deputies she told Brewer on several different occasions to take the child to the emergency room. During a search of the home, deputies found a digital scale, wooden pipe and needles with unknown substances. Brewer and Bogdanowich admitted to using meth on Feb. 14, five days before Wyllow died. Gossett admitted to selling drugs but claimed she did not sell when babysitting the child.
