UPDATE: Father set to enter plea in infant son’s death

Doyle Hundley, Sussex County

A Sussex County man charged in the death of his infant son is scheduled to appear in court.

Online court records show that 39-year-old Doyle Hundley Jr. of Harbeson is scheduled to appear at plea hearing in Georgetown on Monday.

Hundley and the boy's mother, 29-year-old Casey Layton, were charged in December 2015 with first-degree murder by abuse and endangering the welfare of a child. Court records indicate that both parents were longtime drug addicts.

Authorities received a 911 call in May 2015 reporting that 3-month-old Aiden Hundley was having a seizure. He was admitted to a hospital in critical condition and remained on life support until he died four months later.

An autopsy ruled Aiden's death a homicide due to blunt force trauma to the head.
