Kansas Man to be Tried in Death of Girlfriend’s Son

KSAL StaffJuly 24, 2013

A Kansas man has been ordered to stand trial for the shaking death earlier this year of his girlfriend’s infant son.

Nineteen-year-old Ogden resident Michael Dechant is charged in Riley County with first-degree murder and child abuse, accused of violently shaking 6-month-old Dominick Lubrano on March 15. The baby died three days later.

WIBW-TV reports Dechant’s girlfriend, Sabrina Lubrano, has said she left Dominick briefly with Dechant while she ran an errand. Lubrano said she returned to find a neighbor giving the baby CPR in an effort to revive him.

A detective testified at Tuesday’s preliminary hearing that Dechant admitted shaking the baby to “shut him up.” But a defense lawyer noted that police did not determine the age of the bruises on the infant’s body.
