Bond was set Friday at $1 million for a Wichita man accused in the death this week of his 4-month-old son.

James W. Thomas, 31, was charged in Sedgwick County District Court with first-degree murder in the death of Zereon L. Thomas.

Judge Warren Wilbert ordered Thomas to return to court for a preliminary hearing on Aug. 6 and told him he was to have no contact with witnesses in the case.

Wichita police said Thomas took the boy to Wesley Medical Center at 5:20 p.m. Tuesday for treatment of bruises. Police said doctors found injuries to the boy's head and torso that appeared to have occurred at different times.

The boy's mother was in jail at the time on unrelated charges.

Police said Thomas has at least four other children in other states. Although there were indications that some of those children were physically abused, police said, no charges were ever filed against Thomas...

Well it is certainly a great tragedy for the child to have suffered so much while so young and innocent. Apparently he was being abused over a period of time and more than once.The father / monster can expect some brutality to be visited upon him when he goes to prison. Guess we'll see how tough he is when he has to deal with men his own size.It's common knowledge baby killers don't do well in prison. "An eye for an eye".
