Trial set for man charged with killing 1-month-old

JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - A December trial date has been scheduled for a Brookland man charged with killing his 1-month-old son.

The Jonesboro Sun reports that a Dec. 16 trial date was set Friday for 36-year-old Sidney Campbell.

Campbell has not yet entered a plea in the case and is jailed on $250,000 bond.

Brookland police say officers called to Campbell's home in July were told by Campbell that he had found his son dead. An autopsy later determined that the infant died of blunt force trauma to the head and had skull fractures.
