IOWA CITY (KWWL) - A former Iowa City man accused of killing his infant son will stand trial in May.

That's according to online court records.

Brian Dykstra was set to go on trial in August but his attorney filed motions for a continuance.

Investigators say on August 13, 2005,  Dykstra was watching his adopted son, Isaac, when emergency crews received a 911 call from his home. The boy died the next day and according to police, had massive brain swelling.
