WATERLOO (KWWL) -
A preliminary hearing is set for a father accused of killing his baby boy. Daniel Reddout will be in court May 27th for a hearing.
Police arrested the 23-year-old father Monday in Hampton. They say he admitted to cutting off his son's airflow at a Cedar Falls motel in April.
At an initial court appearance Tuesday, Reddout told the judge, "All I have to say is this is crap. They say I admitted to it and I didn't admit to it."
He's being charged with first degree murder in the death of Kaleb Reddout. The infant died after being found unresponsive at the Midway Motel on University Avenue back on April 4th. An autopsy showed the child died from suffocation.
Reddout is being held at the Black Hawk County Jail. Bond is set at one million dollars.
