Christina O'Haver, The Union Democrat /

A 26-year-old Jamestown man was booked on suspicion of child cruelty on Sunday after bringing his 3-month-old daughter into Sonora Regional Medical Center, according to the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Office.

About 9:50 a.m., Kevin Michael Boehmer arrived at the hospital with his daughter, who was having difficulty breathing.

Hospital staff noticed several old bruises and injuries around the child's neck and chest, according to Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Jeff Wilson.

She was airlifted to Children's Hospital and Research Center Oakland and is not expected to survive, Wilson said Monday.

Boehmer recently moved to Tuolumne County from Washington, where the child's mother is currently incarcerated on child cruelty charges, Wilson said.

Further information about the mother and her arrest was not available Monday.

Boehmer was still in custody Monday afternoon in lieu of $100,000 bail.
