A man accused of fatally shaking his crying baby was scheduled to appear in court today for a bond hearing, but that hearing was canceled.

According to authorities, then-4-month-old Camron Knowles was shaken by his father Brennan Knowles in January 2010. The child was hospitalized in critical condition, but clung to life for more than a year. He died in June 2011. Brennan Knowles, 24, faces charges of aggravated child abuse, second-degree murder and aggravated manslaughter of a child.
