PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Bond has been set at $20,000 for a Pierre man accused of killing his infant son.
Garfield Good Face, age 29, is charged with second-degree manslaughter in last week's death of 2-month-old Tiernyn Good Face.
Garfield Good Face made his first court appearance Monday via interactive television from Hughes County Jail.
During the proceeding, the infant's mother asked the judge to release Garfield Good Face from jail so Good Face could support her and attend the child's funeral, which is Wednesday in Pierre.
The judge refused to lower the bond due to the nature of the crime.
Good Face's next court appearance is set for June 4.
