WENTZVILLE • The baby boy victimized in a high-profile child abuse case here has died, spurring prosecutors to elevate the felony charge already filed against his father.

Assistant Police Chief Paul West said his department was notified early Tuesday that the 9-week-old boy had died at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis.

The father, Robert James Burnette, 19, has been in the St. Charles County Jail for several weeks on a charge of felony abuse or neglect of a child, causing serious physical injury.

 On Tuesday, Prosecutor Tim Lohmar amended the charge to abuse of a child resulting in a death, the maximum allowed in child abuse cases. His office said it’s now treating the case as a homicide.

They are protected by New York State laws.
