Mason City man accused of breaking infant’s bones says he’s not guilty

CHARLES CITY – A man who recently moved to Mason City accused of causing serious injuries to an infant will face trial next month.

William Khuns, age 21, was taken to jail on the morning of March 9 when Charles City police came to Mason City, found him near the 1000 block of 4th Street SW and arrested him on an arrest warrant. According to a report from the Associated Press, Kuhns caused serious injuries to an infant when he broke the baby’s ribs by twisting the baby’s arm behind its back and squeezing until he heard a “pop”. The AP reports Kuhns’ actions caused nine bones to break.

Kuhns, who claimed to work at Curries and live in Mason City, entered a not-guilty plea in April.  After a few postponements, a jury trial date is now set for August 23 with a pre-trial conference (possible plea deal) set for August 8.

Kuhns was arrested three times last November, for stealing and trespassing (twice) at a store he wasn’t supposed to be in.  He later pleaded guilty.  Also in January, he was arrested by Charles City police for illegal possession of marijuana.  He skipped a court date and a warrant was issued for his arrest in that case, too.  He later pleaded guilty and was ordered to pay $900.31 in fines and court fees, spend two days in jail, lose his driver’s license for 180 days and submit a DNA sample.
