A Lewis County man charged in connection with the death a woman's child was in court Tuesday.

Christopher Sheppard asked Judge John Henning for a bond reduction.

Judge Henning said incoming Judge Kurt Hall would consider the request in September.

Sheppard faces a charge of child abuse resulting in death in the death of Julia Mick's child.

Mick faces a charge of child neglect resulting in death.

Sheppard said he was watching Mick's son when he fell out of a sink and hit his head.

Sheppard was previously charged with first degree murder in connection to the death of Mick's child but Special Prosecutor Michael Parker dismissed that charge in June.
