CLAY COUNTY, Mo. – An Excelsior Springs man is out on bond after being charged with his son’s death.
Olin Tannery, 40, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Dominick Pittsenbarger in April 2018.
Tannery told police he couldn’t get his 1-month-old son Dominick to be quiet in 1998, according to court documents from 20 years ago.
Dominick was taken to Children’s Mercy Hospital in 1998 with life-threatening injuries and died in April 2018.
Tannery was indicted in October on a charge of second-degree murder in his son’s death, with bond set at $500,000.
On Dec. 14, court records show that a judge approved a reduction in bond to $50,000.
Tannery was released on Dec. 19 after bond was posted.
A hearing in the case is scheduled for Jan. 11.
