Michigan Man Charged In March Death Of Infant

PORTLAND, Mich. (AP) – A Michigan man has been charged with murder and child abuse in the March death of one of his twin infant sons.

The Sentinel-Standard of Ionia and WOOD-TV report 27-year-old Keith Thibeault of Portland was arrested Tuesday on the charges by police in Portland, about 20 miles northwest of Lansing.

A court hearing was expected Wednesday. The Associated Press left a message Wednesday with a court official in Ionia County seeking information on whether he had a lawyer.

Authorities say the arrest comes after one of his twin sons, Everette Thibeault, was brought to Sparrow Hospital in Lansing injuries consistent with physical abuse. The child, who was 3 months old at the time, later died. The child’s twin brother has been removed from the care of his parents.
