ELLSWORTH AIR FORCE BASE, S.D. (AP) — Officials at Ellsworth Air Force Base say an airman has been charged with murder in the death of his infant son.

Airman 1st Class David E. MacDonald faces a pretrial hearing in military court on Oct. 26. A statement from the base says the charge stems from the death of MacDonald's son on Nov. 7, but gives no details.

Ellsworth officials did not immediately respond to a message seeking the name of MacDonald's legal representation.
