EDWARDSVILLE — An Edwardsville man was charged with murder Wednesday and is accused of killing his infant daughter by shaking her.
Thomas Dellamano, 38, is facing two counts of first-degree murder in the death of his 6-month-old daughter.
First responders were called to provide medical assistance to the child on Sept. 28 and she died in a hospital six days later from injuries "consistent with being shaken," according to a press release from Madison County State's Attorney Tom Haine's office.
Dellamano was in custody Wednesday in the Madison County jail. Circuit Court Judge Ronald Slemer set his bond at $1 million.
