BOY CHARGED AS ADULT IN MURDER OF BABY NIECE
Amber Bauer, 13-months-old, was allegedly fed a bottle of juice poisoned with windshield washer fluid and sexually assaulted by her 14-year-old uncle, Braxton Bowers. The teen is accused of allegedly mixing windshield washer fluid with juice in a bottle and giving it to her after baby-sitting for several hours and the baby scratched him while he was changing her diaper. Juvenile Court Judge Steven Nash cited Bowers' history of arson and the fundamentally brutal, vicious crimes he is charged with in the December 6th, 1999 death of Amber. Defense attorney Adam Brenner argues the boy did not know the fluid would kill her.
