BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Reginald Jordan, 37, of Buffalo, has been charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of his six-month-old son, King Jordan, in September 2019.

First responders were called to an apartment on Grote Street in Buffalo on the evening of September 20, 2019. They transported King Jordan to Oishei Children's Hospital, where he later died. Several months later, an autopsy found Jordan had died of shaken baby syndrome.

The Erie County District Attorney's Office says Reginald Jordan was arraigned on Wednesday morning. He is accused of "shaking the baby and causing blunt force injuries to the child's head and neck." Jordan is being held without bail and is due back in court on May 27 for motions.
