Dad's trial for murder of 7-week-old son rescheduled (Modesto, Califonria)

Dad is identified as ABINESH KUMAR. Notice that Daddy is also charged with beating the baby's mother. This is not surprising--child abuse and domestic violence often got together, regardless of what the fathers rights people claim.

MODESTO -- A judge on Tuesday rescheduled a trial to start Oct. 22 for a 31-year-old Modesto father accused of murder in the death of his 7-week-old son and in the beating of the infant's mother.

Abinesh Kumar has been charged with murder, child abuse causing death, and battery on a spouse resulting in a traumatic injury.

The infant, Abinav Kumar, died Aug. 18, 2011, in his north Modesto home.

Emergency personnel responded to reports of an unresponsive child about 1 a.m. and found the boy dead. Kumar was arrested that afternoon after police questioned him. The trial is estimated to last two weeks.

Kumar remains in custody at the Stanislaus County Jail.
