OMAHA (KPTM) - The Omaha man police say is responsible for the death of his girlfriend's infant will go to trial.

Police say 24-year-old Tyler Kennedy was watching the infant in July when he called 911. Police say the boy, Orlando Were, went to the hospital and was declared brain dead. He was taken off of life support days later.

Police also say that Kennedy admitted to "slapping and shaking" the 1-year-old.

The case is not the first time Kennedy has been accused of abuse. The mother of two of his daughters told FOX 42 News exclusively that she noticed bruises after they stayed with him during his court-mandated custody time. She  tried to get a protection order, but was denied.

There will be more on this story updated here and a full report tonight on the News at Nine.
