A trial is expected to begin in June for a 27-year-old man accused of killing his girlfriend's young son.

Deputies say they were called to a home in the Town of Pine River, outside of Bancroft Oct. 26 with a report of a child having trouble breathing.

Prosecutors say, Reymundo Perez threw two-year-old Felix Espinoza-Villa on the ground to try to stop him from crying. Court documents say the boy suffered multiple injuries, including a severed spine, and died two days later.

Perez is charged with first-degree reckless homicide and child abuse. He remains behind bars on a $100,000 cash bond.

The eight day trial is expected to begin June 3.
