BEDFORD COUNTY, Tenn. - The trial date has been set for a young father accused of killing his one-month-old son.
A jury will hear first-degree murder charges against Andrew Johnston on January 30, 2012 in Bedford County.
Authorities arrested Johnston last year on charges of aggravated child abuse when his son was rushed to the hospital with critical injuries.
According to a police report, Johnston said he'd been playing video games, and little William wouldn't stop crying, so he shook him. The baby later died of his injuries.
