Gresham man pleads not guilty in child abuse case

Ryan Kozisek

A Gresham man has pled not guilty for two counts of felony child abuse that resulted in death of his daughter.

Ryan Kozisek entered his plea in York County District Court Monday.  A tentative jury trial has been set for September 13th.

Kozisek is accused in the death of his 4-month-old daughter, Kayley. She died at an Omaha
hospital on Jan. 25, a day after Kozisek called 911 saying she wasn't breathing. Court documents say he told emergency crews that his 2-year-old daughter accidentally fell off a stepping stool onto the baby. A doctor told investigators that the infant sustained
injures that couldn't have been caused by a 2-year-old.
