Papka and Richland County Deputy Sheriff Jim Kountz, who also arrived on the scene quickly, heard what sounded like "chant- ing" coming from the apartment. Papka found the door unlocked, so he and Kountz entered the apartment, according to the affidavit. Papka announced himself again. He could hear water running in the bathroom. The bath- room door was closed. When he opened it, he saw Sasha clothed and in the bathtub holding a naked infant. Papka said the show- er was running and hitting the baby di- rectly in the face. He noticed that the baby appeared to be lifeless and that its skin was discolored. There were also several circular wounds on the infants chest. Papka picked up the child, noting that she was lifeless, and rushed her to the Sid- ney Health Center Emergency Room. Kountz remained on the scene and detained Sasha because she was behaving erratically. Captain Mark Kraft was notified at 8:48 a.m. by dis- patch that Papka had taken an infant to the emergency room. At 9:02 a.m he was no- tified that emergency room staff had called and reported that the child was dead. Their opinion, according to the affidavit, was that it was a case of child abuse. When Kraft exam- ined the body of the infant, who was later identified as Kylie Ann Hinds, he noted there were several small, red marks on the child's chest that appeared to be punc- ture or stab wounds. He also noted the in- fant had two black eyes. While at the emer- gency room, Kraft learned that a male, Brendan Sheehan, was being transport- ed to the Emergency Room by ambulance from the Cottonwood Apartments after he was discovered in 310 2nd Ave NE, Sidney MT 59270 Phone: 406-433-2403. www.sidneyherald.com editor@sidneyherald.com Kelly Miller PublisFler Harleigh Roth Multi-Media Sales Ked Brown Classified Specialist covered by your payment.
