A Halifax man accused of shaking his two-month-old child appeared in Halifax provincial court yesterday to hear his charges.

Michael McNish, 27, was arraigned yesterday on one count of aggravated assault.

According to police, an infant boy was brought into the IWK Health Centre in late June by his parents with injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome.

Police say they were called to the hospital by staff in the early morning hours of June 23 regarding the baby’s injuries, which led to an investigation by the Halifax Regional Police/RCMP Major Crime Unit.

Two days later, police issued a release saying McNish had been charged.

The child is expected to make a full recovery.

McNish has been granted bail on several conditions and will appear in court again on Oct. 22 for election and plea.
