Scott Jurewicz: Charged With Murder Of Ex-Girlfriend’s Baby, Suspect In A Second Baby’s Death [Video]

Scott Jurewicz, 27, of Jackson, Michigan, has been charged with felony murder and first degree child abuse in the suspicious death of his former girlfriend’s 18-month-old son Brenden Hartranft. Brenden died in the hospital after sustaining head and neck injuries which Jurewicz is accused of causing. Jurewicz was arraigned Tuesday in Judge Mazur’s courtroom after being arrested on Friday night, according to WILX News. Jackson County District Court Judge Daryl Mazur denied bond to Jurewicz. Chief Assistant Prosecutor Kati Rezmierski called Hartranft’s death violent and brutal when she requested that Jurewicz’ bond be denied.

“We are asking that you keep him locked up, and if you don’t deny bond at least set it high enough that we can ensure the safety of the children in this community,” Rezmierski said.

Scott suggested that he was of no risk to the community given that he has been fathering his own nine-year-old son without incident, but the judge ultimately disagreed and retained him.
