A Putnam County man who was convicted of child endangerment in 2006 has now admitted to law enforcement he murdered the child. The Putnam County Sentinel reports Travis Soto made his confession at the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office Monday. The details of the confession are part of ongoing investigation, but Prosecutor Gary Lammers says that Soto’s comments indicated he acted willingly in the death of his son, 2-year-old Julio Soto-Baldoza.
Soto pleaded guilty to a child endangerment in 2006. He was initially charged with involuntary manslaughter after running the child over with an ATV and failing to get medical help.
Right now it’s unclear what, if any, charges Soto might face. Lammers tells the newspaper investigators are following up on Soto’s claim. They are looking to see if the evidence matches new statements.
