Another Delay In Coldwater Man's Preliminary Hearing

(COLDWATER) – There's been another delay in the preliminary hearing of a Coldwater man charged in the death of an infant.

Officials with Branch County District Court say 43 year old Steven Shaw was to have his preliminary hearing Wednesday on a charge of open murder. Branch County Probate Court Judge Kirk Kashian was filling in for District Court Judge Brent Weigle, who was unavailable. However Kashian removed himself from the bench when Shaw's attorney objected to Kashian presiding over the exam.

Kashian denied any direct conflict of interest, but did agree it was best to recuse himself because he had presided in a parental rights case involving Shaw.

The preliminary hearing has now been rescheduled for September 17.

Shaw was living with the mother of seven month old Carson Burm and his 2 year old sister on May 29. Shaw was alone with the infant and the girl when he called 911 and said Carson had stopped breathing.

The infant was flown to Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo where he was pronounced dead the next day. Following an investigation, in which police found inconsistencies with Shaw's explanation of what happened and an autopsy of the infant, Shaw was arrested and charged with murder.
