EDT SPRING LAKE, MI (WHTC) - A preliminary examination on first-degree child abuse charges is slated in Grand Haven District Court today for Justin McIntyre, the 23-year-old father of a six-week-old boy who suffered brain injuries after apparently being shaken violently at a Spring Lake home last Friday. He remains held on 75 thousand dollars bond following the incident involving Bentley McIntyre, who was flown to DeVos Children’s Hospital after doctors at North Ottawa Community Hospital alerted police. The infant remains in critical condition. If convicted, Justin McIntyre could receive life in prison under a new state law.
