Lebanon man given shock time and probation in fatal child abuse case


LEBANON, Mo – A Lebanon man who pleaded guilty to child endangerment resulting in the child’s death will spend 60 days in the Laclede County jail and spend 5 years on supervised probation.

Kyle Nickel received a 20 year sentence, but the judge suspended execution of the sentence and imposed shock time and probation instead.

The probable cause statement reports on March 27, 2018, two-month-old Gracelyn Nickel was acting fussy, and Kyle told authorities he was getting frustrated. 

Nickel told authorities he threw her on the armrest of the couch causing a fracture to her skull and five blood clots in her brain, which she later died from, according to the autopsy.
