RIDGECREST, Calif. - The man accused of killing his 2-month-old son back in March of 2012 had two charges dismissed this week.
Kylor Smith-Sims had first degree murder and physical abuse on a child charges dismissed on March 28.
Smith-Sims is still charged with voluntary manslaughter and first degree burglary but he pleaded no contest to those charges.
Back in March of 2012, Smith-Sims told police that around 4:45 a.m. on March 6, he woke up to his baby, Travion, crying. Smith-Sims said when he went to pick up Travion, he accidentally dropped him.
Travion was taken off life support four days later at a hospital in Los Angeles.
Experts tell a different story than Smith-Sims. The police report reveals that the forensic pediatrician dealing with the case believes the baby's injuries could not have been sustained from being dropped as Smith-Sims described.
The expert also said the injuries were equivalent to a major car accident or falling from a three-story building.
Travion suffered from skull fractures, retinal hemorrhaging, and 12 broken ribs.
