WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) — A judge has ordered a Wisconsin baby sitter not to have contact with the family of a 2-month-old boy she is accused of killing and then pretending he was alive when she gave the baby back to his mother.

Judge Jill Falstad also ordered 28-year-old Marissa Tietsort of Wausau not to have contact with children. The order was filed this week in Marathon County court and will remain in effect until Tietsort is released on bond.

Tietsort, who is pregnant with her sixth child, also would not have to pay child support for one of her children while she's in jail, under a stipulation filed Thursday.

A criminal complaint alleges Tietsort caused the baby's death in October, then put him in a snowsuit and car seat and returned him to his mother — without telling her the child was dead.

Tietsort also is charged with child abuse involving an 11-month-old girl in her care stemming from an August incident. Court documents in that case say Tietsort was suspected of child abuse in June 2017 when a 3-month-old suffered facial bruises and a fractured skull. Tietsort denied injuring the baby and was not charged.

Tietsort is due back in court Jan. 18. Her public defenders did not immediately return a request for comment Thursday.
