Man faces trial in death of girlfriend's 8-month-old son

COLOMA, Mich. (AP) -

A southwestern Michigan man will stand trial in the death of his girlfriend's 8-month-old son.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports that 31-year-old Brandon Beshires waived a preliminary examination Tuesday.

Beshires of Benton Harbor is charged with murder and child abuse.

Carter Donovan suffered head injuries in February while his mother, 31-year-old Autumn Atchley, was at a doctor's appointment in Coloma, southwest of Grand Rapids.

Authorities say Beshires was with the child for 90 minutes. After Atchley returned to the vehicle they drove Carter to a hospital.

Beshires was not the boy's father.

A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for Sept. 23.
