Father arrested for killing 7-week-old son

STAFFORD, VA (WWBT) - Jason Wade Andre, 31, has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of his son.

The Stafford County Sheriff's Office was called to Andre's residence on June 29 because a child was having difficulty breathing.

The child was transported to a local hospital and died a few days later.  Officials said a doctor's examination determined the child suffered injuries consistent with Shaken Baby Syndrome.

The Grand Jury indicted Andre on the murder charge as well as aggravated malicious wounding and child neglect.

Andre is being held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
