Police say a 6-month-old boy is dead and his father's accused of killing him.
The six-month-old baby, Caden Sollman, is dead and doctors say it's because of being violently shaken. The baby's father, according to records, told police, he "jerked" Caden because the baby was being fussy and crying and he was frustrated.
Thirty-eight-year-old, Jeffery Sollman
of Decatur is charged with first degree murder. Sollman told police, according to records, after he jerked Caden, he noticed the baby was acting differently, even breathing differently; he then left Caden in his crib.
Sollman then drove the baby to the lake because he says he thought he may be spending his last day with his son and he also thought the lake might soothe the baby. They then went back home, his wife and baby's mother came home he then told her he injured the baby.
She brought Caden to St. Mary's Hospital. The baby was airlifted to Peoria clinging to life, and then died Thursday morning.
It appears that Sollman admits to jerking his son but doctors say its shaken baby syndrome because of injuries like bleeding in the brain, seizures, and more.
Police say Sollman has a five-year-old daughter, but she does not live with him.
