$5M bond set for man accused in child's death

LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - A state judge has set a $5 million bond for a Sulphur man indicted on a second-degree murder charge in the death of an infant.

The American Press reports 24-year-old Trent Dubroc is accused of throwing his girlfriend's 13-month-old child against a wall out of frustration, killing the toddler.

Dubroc was originally charged with second-degree cruelty to a juvenile, on which Judge Michael Canaday set a $1.5 million bond.

Judge David Ritchie agreed to the bond increase after Thursday's indictment.

Dubroc also faces a charge of video voyeurism and a contempt of court charge for failing to appear Sept. 20 on the video voyeurism charge.

It was unclear whether Dubroc has an attorney.
