MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Nearly a year and a half after the death of a 1-year-old girl, a nanny’s husband went before a judge Monday for the crime.
Police said the 27-year-old Shakopee man is responsible for the death of Tara Engman. Engman died in December 2015 from blunt force injuries in Minneapolis.
Investigators said DNA from Engman’s ears was matched to Larson.
The girl’s nanny initially told police that her husband never touched Engman. However, the nanny later told investigators that her husband was left alone with the child that day.
Larson appeared in court Monday afternoon. He remains in custody and his bail was set at $1 million unconditional or half that with conditions. His next hearing is set for June 7.
