Nov. 25, 2014
WAUKEGAN, Ill. (AP) — A trial date has been set for a Chicago man accused of killing his 2-month-old son in Waukegan last year.
Andre Sharkey is charged with first degree murder and has pleaded not guilty. He is set to go on trial in Lake County Circuit Court on Dec. 8, The News-Sun of Lake County (http://trib.in/1AQ5RvN ) reports.
Police say Sharkey's son, Samuel, had "suspicious injuries" when he was taken to a hospital in the northern Chicago suburb, where he died last November. Police say the baby died of trauma to the abdomen.
He's being held in the Lake County jail on $3 million bond. Court records don't list the name of his public defender.
