Kruckenberg-Anderson has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse in connection with the little girl's alleged murder.
On January 9, the maternal grandfather contacted police to report that his daughter had given birth a few days prior but the baby hadn't been seen since being taken by her father, Kruckenberg-Anderson.
When authorities located Kruckenberg-Anderson, the teen told investigators he gave the child to a friend named “Tyler", court papers allege. That story later turned out to be false, police allege.
On January 10, authorities found the baby deceased.
The criminal complaint states that Kruckenberg-Anderson eventually revealed that he and the baby’s mother came to an agreement that they were unable to care for the infant, according to the outlet.
"(The pair) could not keep the infant child and decided that they needed to do something to not have the child in their life," the complaint reads.
"Kruckenberg-Anderson and (the baby's mother) discussed several options such as dropping the child off at the local fire department or transporting the child to Madison and drop her off at an 'adoption place'."
The baby's mother believed that Kruckenberg-Anderson was following through on this agreement when he left with their baby, according to court papers.
He allegedly then made plans to get rid of the infant himself, the complaint states.Most read in NewsLive BlogTRUMP CARDNew York severs ALL business ties with Trump over Capitol as impeachment loomsBreaking‘CALM TEMPERS’Trump calls for ‘NO violent protests’ as he faces second impeachmentLatestFINAL GASPWomb raider 'throbbed' & licked lips as she was executed with lethal injectionMAGA MOB‘Spiderman’ seen dangling from balcony arrested with ‘Camp Auschwitz’ shirt rioterMAGA BEATDOWNDramatic moment Capitol cops ‘tackle and repeatedly punch’ MAGA rioterSHORT MEMORY?Pelosi accused of hypocrisy over tweet claiming 2016 election was ‘HIJACKED’
The suspect allegedly said he put the baby, who wasn’t wearing any clothing at the time, in a backpack, ventured into the woods, and hid her inside a fallen tree before covering her with snow. He said the baby cried as he walked away, the complaint says.
Kruckenberg-Anderson led authorities to the infant on January 10.
Autopsy results revealed that the baby had been shot in the head. When presented with evidence, the teen allegedly admitted that he shot the infant twice.
Kruckenberg-Anderson will be tried as an adult.
