A Warrens man charged in the November 2015 death of his infant son faces new charges that accuse him of abusing another child.

Troy Tralmer



The victim, now 9, said Troy Tralmer spun her by the arms and legs and swung her into a wall and bed while he was babysitting between November 2012 and November 2014, according to the complaint filed in Monroe County Circuit Court.

Tralmer, 27, is due in court June 12 to face a charge of physical abuse of a child.

Prosecutors in November 2015 charged Tralmer in the death of his 3-month-old son.

Tralmer told investigators he dropped his son Chad on Nov. 5 while performing the Heimlich maneuver after the infant choked on milk, according to the complaint filed in Monroe County Circuit Court. He tried CPR when his son stopped breathing and called 911 from his residence in Tunnel City.

The infant did not regain consciousness and died at a hospital two days later.

Tralmer denied violently shaking his son while home alone with the infant. An autopsy found the child suffered seven broken ribs, a fractured skull and bleeding in his brain, according to the complaint.

Tralmer’s trial for first-degree reckless homicide and physical abuse of a child causing great bodily harm is set for June 18-29, 2018.
