SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A man accused of killing his three-month-old son will face a first-degree manslaughter charge.
A grand jury on Friday indicted Felipe Lebron, 28, on charges of first-degree manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child.
Lebron was arrested Jan. 5 after police responded to a report of an unconscious child at his home at 418 Douglas St. He was initially charged with recklessly causing an injury to a child, a felony. The child, Anthony Lebron, died Jan. 10 from a head trauma.
According to the indictment, Lebron "shook the child with force causing blunt force trauma to the head and thereby death."
Lebron is facing additional charges of assault and robbery related to a separate incident in 2013. In that instance, Lebron is accused of assaulting a 49-year-old apartment owner.
