SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Not guilty pleas have been entered for a Sioux Falls man charged in the death of his infant son.
Twenty-two-year-old Dylan Castimore appeared via video from the Minnehaha County Jail Wednesday on charges of murder and manslaughter in the death of 8-week-old Daxton Castimore. An autopsy determined the baby’s death was caused by a skull fracture. A contributing factor in the child’s death was a lacerated liver. Court documents say the infant had several other injuries, including broken ribs.
Castimore is being held on a $1 million cash bond. Both charges carry a maximum of life in prison upon conviction.
