BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A Maine man charged with manslaughter in the death of a 5-month-old child he was babysitting has been ordered held on $100,000 cash bail.

Twenty-five-year-old Samuel Moore of Bangor did not enter a plea during his initial court appearance on Friday. WZON-AM says the judge ordered the affidavit sealed.

Police say Moore had been babysitting the victim, Korbyn Antworth, who died Wednesday at Eastern Maine Medical Center. The cause of death has not been released.

A prosecutor said Friday that the baby had numerous injuries that were consistent with shaken baby syndrome.

Moore’s attorney, Marvin Glazier of Bangor, had no comment after the hearing.
