A 27-year-old Greenville father has been accused of killing his two-month-old son, who died Sunday at a St. Louis area hospital from injuries he suffered on Friday.
James A. Hickman is charged with two counts of first degree murder and was being held on $2 million cash bond at the Bond County Jail on Tuesday morning.
The Bond County State’s Attorney filed charges on Tuesday morning.
Charges against Hickman say that the man shook the baby knowing that such an act would create “a strong probability of death.”
