JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) - A 30-year-old father is scheduled to have his preliminary exam Friday. Michael Young is charged with the death of his infant son.

In January, police say Young placed his son in bath water that was too hot for his four-month-old. The water burned the little boy, which led to his death.

Young is charged with felony murder and first degree child abuse.
