Bail for Breckenridge Man Set at $1.5 Million in Murder Case

April 24th, 2018

A Breckenridge man facing numerous charges in the death of his son made his first court appearance Tuesday, April 24th. Bail was set at $1.5 million for Tracy Brant. Brant is charged with one count of murder, three counts of third degree assault, and two counts of malicious punishment of a child.

Brant’s son, three-year-old Winter Sky Barker, was found not breathing after officers responded to a 911 call at Park Manor apartments in Breckenridge. Efforts to resuscitate the child were unsuccessful. The medical examiner declared the cause of death to be blunt trauma to the stomach, and also found evidence of persistent abuse.
