MARIETTA, Ohio (AP) - A man accused of suffocating his infant son and seriously injuring his toddler daughter is due to be arraigned on aggravated murder and other charges in southeastern Ohio.

Adam Baker, of Marietta, was arrested last month and indicted on aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder charges. His arraignment was scheduled Monday.

His public defender hasn’t returned messages seeking comment.

Washington County prosecutor Kevin Rings has said detectives began investigating the 23-year-old Baker after his 2-year-old daughter was taken to a hospital in November because she’d lost consciousness. Rings says the girl suffered brain damage and is now blind and using a wheelchair.

He wouldn’t comment on what evidence was gathered during the police investigation.

Baker’s 4-month-old son died in June. A coroner couldn’t determine how the boy died.
