Man Accused of Killing Infant Daughter Pleads Not Guilty

Posted: Updated:
BUTTE -

A Butte man accused of killing his 8 week-old baby daughter pleaded not guilty in Butte-Silver Bow District Court Thursday.

Matthew John Blaz is charged with deliberate homicide.

In late September, at the conclusion of a month long investigation, Blaz was arrested after court documents say there is reason to believe he killed his infant daughter, Mattisyn Blaz.

Blaz originally stated he thought the baby was dropped by a neighborhood boy, but an autopsy showed the baby died from abusive trauma.

Blaz is being held on $100,000 bond.

He will appear in court next on November 14.
