CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A teen-aged father from Chesterfield County will be tried as an adult, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Brandon Parker, 17, was charged with shaking his 2-month-old son to death after the child started to scream in June.
Doctors testified in court Thursday the baby was shaken so bad that it caused severe bleeding to the child's brain.
The judge found that was enough cause to issue a second-degree murder charge against the teen to a grand jury.
