A Wexford County man is being charged with the death of his eight-week-old son.
Tyler Russell is charged with one count of involuntary manslaughter and a count of firstdegree child abuse.
Prosecutors say the Michigan State Police found the newborn - Xavier Russell - unresponsive in the family's Mesick home.
The boy was taken to a Traverse City hospital where he later died.
An autopsy showed the boy died from brain and spinal injuries due to shaking.
Russell is expected to be in court today for a probable cause hearing.
