LANCASTER, VA (WWBT) - A Lancaster teenager will be in court Tuesday charged with killing a 5-month old infant.

Eighteen-year-old Brent Snyder told investigators he was holding the child, when he slipped and fell while coming out of the bathroom last week.

The child was flown from Lancaster to VCU Medical Center, and died Thursday.

Snyder is charged with homicide and several drug related offenses.
