Signature bond set in Taylor County toddler death πŸ’₯πŸ‘©πŸ‘©πŸ’₯

MEDFORD, Wis. (WAOW) – Bond has been set for the Taylor County mother facing charges in her toddler’s death.

Natasha Bratland, 31, appeared in Taylor County Court this afternoon, where Judge Ann Knox-Bauer set a $5,000 signature bond.

Bratland’s 2-year-old child was killed in June after being hit by a train.

Officials say that, before being hit, the toddler was seen walking down the street in just a diaper, without any supervision.

Residents in the area have also told Taylor County Sheriff’s detectives that it was common to see Bratland’s children playing in the streets throughout the village, as well as on roof tops and on the railroad tracks.

At the time of the incident, Bratland told officials that she was in the house with another of her children, who was not feeling well.

Officials say that there was no wrongdoing on the train conductor’s part.

“As we’ve all heard trains you know blasting as they approach the intersection,” Taylor County Sheriff Larry Woebbeking has said. It β€œwas going on numerous times, not just a couple of times; it was continuous.”

Woebbeking also said that the train’s speed was appropriate for the area.

No charges have been filed against the child’s father, who police say was not home when the toddler was killed.

Bratland faces charges of neglecting a child – consequence is death.

Her next court hearing is set for March 2.
