CINCINNATI – Authorities say a 27-year-old Ohio man whose son died of a skull fracture is charged with the murder.
A judge on Friday set a $1 million bond for Joshua Mounts, of Sharonville, in Hamilton County Municipal Court. He was arrested and charged Thursday.
The authorities say that Mounts 911 on Jan. 25 and told a dispatcher his 6-month-old son wasn’t breathing. WLWT-TV reports the child died three days later.
The police said the skull fracture was caused by blunt force trauma.
Mounts’ attorney was not immediately available for comment Friday.
Prosecutors are expected to present Mounts’ case to a grand jury on April 9.
