A 20-year-old Hagerstown man was charged Sunday in the death of a 4-month-old boy who died Saturday at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.
Floyd Edward Bingaman, of 17308 Amber Drive in Hagerstown, was ordered held without bail during a bond hearing late Sunday in Washington County District Court.
Bingaman faces charges that include first-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death. The first-degree murder charge carries the possibility of the death penalty.
Justice Calvin Stotler, who lived with his mother near Hagerstown, was taken by ambulance to Washington County Hospital with significant head injuries, police said. The hospital notified police of possible child abuse at 2 a.m. Friday, and the baby was flown to The John Hopkins Hospital, where doctors confirmed that he had been abused, police said.
