The case of a Wayne man charged in the death of his infant son has been bound over to Wood County Court of Common Pleas.
James D. Henderson, 20, appeared Wednesday before Bowling Green Municipal Court Judge Mark Reddin.
Henderson, who remains incarcerated in the Wood County jail on $1 million bond, is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the May 17 death of his infant son, Brandon Gage Henderson.
The case was investigated by the Wood County Sheriff’s Office, Wood County Prosecutor’s Office and the Wood County Coroner’s Office.
Brain trauma was revealed in an autopsy of the boy, but it is not clear yet what the cause of death in the case may have been.
During Wednesday’s proceeding, Henderson’s attorney, Adrian Cimmerman, said Henderson waived his scheduled preliminary hearing, thus binding the case over to Wood County.
Henderson, shackled and wearing orange county issue, signed the waiver in open court.
Cimmerman also indicated Henderson has been held since his arrest in the suicide watch cell in the Wood County Justice Center’s booking area, and asked if Reddin could intercede in moving Henderson to different accommodations in the facility.
Reddin indicated the court usually leaves such matters to the discretion of the Wood County Sheriff’s Office.
