A man is facing five charges after allegedly leaving a toddler alone in a Mankato hotel and strangling a woman. Blue Earth County court records say 27-year-old Keegan Samsel has been charged with assault by strangulation, possession of a firearm while committing a violent crime, child neglect and two counts of domestic assault. Authorities say Samsel was upset that the victim was late for a Samsel’s court appearance for DWI and he allegedly assaulted the victim to the point she lost consciousness. Court records say the investigation determined Samsel’s biological son was left alone and unattended in a Mankato hotel room for one to two hours.
