July 27, 2010

A northern Virginia man has pleaded guilty to fatally shaking his nine-month-old son.

Herbert M. Price Jr. pleaded guilty Monday to involuntary manslaughter in the death of his son, Dylan M. Price of Burke. The infant was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, September 22.

The father was initially indicted on murder and child abuse charges in January. Prosecutors dropped the child abuse charge in the plea deal.

Price faces up to ten years in prison. His sentencing is set for September 24.
