More Charges Filed Against Waterloo Man in Son's Death
WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) Prosecutors have filed additional charges against a Waterloo man accused of killing his 18-month-old son.
Daniel Reddout is charged with first-degree murder in the death of his son, Kaleb. Police were called to a Cedar Falls apartment on a report on a child not breathing on April 4. The boy died at the scene. An autopsy showed he died of asphyxiation.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says Tuesday that prosecutors in trial information added charges of child endangerment resulting in death and child endangerment/multiple acts.
Reddout was to be arraigned in Black Hawk County District Court on Monday. His attorney, Matthew Hoffey, filed a written plea of not guilty and waived speedy trial rights, meaning Reddout didn't have to appear.
His trial is set for Aug. 2.
