Trial Ordered in Child's Death

Tyler Kennedy has been ordered to trial for the death of 16-month-old Orlando Were. Kennedy is accused of Child Abuse Resulting in Death.

The child died while Kennedy was watching him. The boy’s mother, Cindy Cooper, is Kennedy’s girlfriend. She was at work at the time.

Investigators believe it's a case of shaken baby syndrome. Kennedy says the child choked on a bottle cap.

Medics found the child unresponsive and he died in the hospital days later.
