DIXON – A 35-year-old Dixon man accused of causing the death of his 3-month-old daughter almost 3 years ago is expected either to make a plea deal or get a trial date at his final pretrial hearing Thursday in Lee County Court.
Charles T. George is charged with two counts of aggravated battery of a child, aggravated domestic battery, and involuntary manslaughter in the death of his daughter, Tamari.
Police say he shook the baby on Sept. 17, 2010, before dropping her to the ground. She died 5 days later at a Rockford hospital.
George is in Lee County Jail on $1 million bond.
