TOWN OF MUKWONAGO — A 22-year-old man who allegedly pushed his girlfriend in front of a train had his bail modified during court proceedings on Feb. 15. The change went from no contact to no violent contact with the victim.

Brandon Calkins of Mukwonago was charged with causing bodily harm to Kelsey Bilicki, resulting in her arm being amputated during an incident in November. In addition, he was also charged with resisting an officer, misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct. Calkins is currently out on bail. 

The criminal complaint said Bilicki was found by officers to be severely injured, with her left arm amputated above the elbow, injury to her thigh and a deep laceration to her forehead. Officers applied a tourniquet to her arm to stop the bleeding. The complaint said Bilicki was unable to provide a statement but officers spoke to her mother.

The mother told officers Bilicki called her claiming that her boyfriend, Calkins, had injured her. The complaint said Bilicki told her mom she was upset by Calkins behavior and was trying to walk away from him.

As Bilicki walked down the railroad tracks away from Calkins, he allegedly caught up with her and pushed her down. The mother said at the time of the phone call her daughter said she struck her head on a rock.

As a result of the accident, Bilicki has undergone many surgeries, including facial reconstruction, repair of her right femur and right clavicle, and further amputation of her left arm.

Calkins' attorney nor Kelsey Bilicki could be reached for comment. His next court date is scheduled for March 1.
