One baby dead, another injured

A man who previously was convicted for causing the death of his 7-week-old son is expected to be sentenced next month for allegedly injuring his 6-week-old son last year.

Kristian James Donnell, 30, of Red Lake, is expected to be sentenced on Aug. 6 for felony neglect or endangerment of a child. He remains in custody in the Beltrami County Jail.

Donnell was convicted on April 6, 1998, for unlawful killing of a human being without malice and served 51 months. He pleaded guilty in U.S. Federal Court for the death of his 7-week-old son.

The charge he now faces stem from injuries his 6-week-old son suffered in October 2006. The infant was diagnosed with having shaken baby syndrome, according to the criminal complaint.

More on this story will be in Saturday's Bemidji Pioneer.
