A man accused of severely injuring his three month old daughter has been charged with a homicide after  the girl was taken off life support.

Kalie Boehmer was admitted to Tuolumne Regional Medical Center on Dec. 9 with a severe head injury as well as injuries to her ribs.  She had bruises on her neck and upper torso.

“These are not accident caused.  The child died as a result of blunt force trauma,” said Michael Knowles, Tuolumne County District Attorney.

Kevin Boehmer, 26, earlier pleaded not guilty to child abuses charges earlier and his public defender reaffirmed that plea after the charges were amended.  His bail was also increased from $100,000 to $1 million.

The girl’s mother Tiffany Tucker is in prison in Washington State for abusing her two-year old daughter.  Kalie was born  in September while she was still serving time and Tucker gave Boehmer custody even though there was no clear-cut evidence that he was the girl’s father.

Boehmer moved to Tuolumne County soon afterward.  He was arrested the same day he brought Kalie to the emergency room.

Knowles said he was the child’s only caretaker and that there was evidence of previous abuse.

“The child was born in September and had a very short life.  There was evidence that some of the injuries were older than others and there was some evidence of healing,” said Knowles.

A preliminary hearing had been scheduled for Friday but given the new charges there’s a likelihood that the hearing would be delayed.
