Branch County Courthouse Coldwater, MI
(COLDWATER) - A Branch County Circuit Court jury is expected to start deliberations on Friday afternoon in the case of a Coldwater man who is charged in the death of a seven month old boy.
43-year-old Steven Shaw is facing charges of first degree murder, open murder and first degree child abuse.
His trial was expected to last for about a week but has gone quicker than expected.
Authorities say Shaw was responsible for the death of Carson Burm in May of 2014.
He was living with the mother of the victim at the time and was alone with the baby and his two year old sister when the boy stopped breathing.
The infant died the next day at Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo.
