CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Latest on plans to search a landfill in Northern Colorado for the remains of a 13-month-old Cheyenne, Wyoming boy (all times local):

2 p.m.

A Wyoming man accused of manslaughter in the death of a missing 13-month-old boy requested a lawyer at his first court appearance Monday.

Twenty-three year-old Logan Hunter Rogers of Cheyenne is charged with manslaughter and reckless child endangerment in the death of Silas Anthony Ojeda of Cheyenne.

Crews plan to start searching for Ojeda’s body Tuesday in a northern Colorado landfill.

Investigators say Rogers was Ojeda’s mother’s boyfriend. Investigators say Rogers told them Ojeda died Oct. 20 after falling from a counter at the family home and that Rogers put his body in a trash container. Trash from the container goes to Colorado.

A judge Monday set Rogers‘ bail at $500,000 cash. He’s set to be in court Nov. 9, when the judge will determine if he should stand trial.

Wyoming authorities have postponed their plan to search a northern Colorado landfill for the body of a missing 13-month-old boy until Tuesday.

Capt. Linda Gesell of the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office says her office secured a search warrant Monday morning for a landfill in Ault, Colorado, and is moving resources to the scene.

Twenty-three year-old Logan Hunter Rogers of Cheyenne is charged with manslaughter and reckless child endangerment in the death of Silas Anthony Ojeda of Cheyenne.

Investigators say Rogers was Ojeda’s mother’s boyfriend.

Investigators say Rodgers first said the boy had gone fishing with another man.

Investigators say Rogers later said Ojeda died Oct. 20 after falling from a counter at home and that Rogers put his body in a trash container. Trash from the container goes to Colorado.

A Wyoming man is due to make a preliminary appearance in court Monday in connection with the disappearance last week of a 13-month-old boy.

Logan Hunter Rogers of Cheyenne was jailed on charges of manslaughter and reckless child endangerment.

Wyoming authorities on Friday announced the charges against Rogers in the death of Silas Anthony Ojeda of Cheyenne.

Capt. Linda Gesell of the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office said last week that authorities intended to search for Ojeda’s body Monday in a landfill in Ault, Colorado. An attempt to reach Gesell on Monday wasn’t immediately successful.

Investigators interviewed an unidentified person at the boy’s home last week who confirmed the boy was dead and that his body had been dumped into a trash container. Trash from the container is taken to Colorado.
