Portage Co. (WAOW) -- A 29-year-old man appeared in court on potential charges of first degree reckless homicide in connection to the death of a baby.

A probable cause hearing was held Tuesday for Meyer Willkom.

Health officials say the 6-month-old baby died from shaken baby syndrome.

In court, prosecutors say the mother of the baby told law enforcement Willkom gave the child a bottle and heard the baby choking a few moments later and was attempting to dislodge what was in the babies throat.

Willkom is being held on a $50,000 bond.
