NORWICH – A Cincinnatus man scheduled to appear in court Monday to begin hearings regarding allegations that he killed his live-in girlfriend’s 16-month-old son, instead asked to dismiss his attorney.
Jason Allen Sherman, 24, of 5223 Piety Hill Road, is charged with first-degree manslaughter and second-degree assault. He was arrested Nov. 10 in connection to the suspicious death of infant Marshall Lee Barber Jr. in the Town of Pitcher.
