Trial date set for man charged in death of 5-month-old

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A trial date is set for a man charged in the death of a 5-month-old baby. 

Devante Randall appeared in court in Milwaukee Tuesday morning. He's charged with reckless homicide, child abuse, and neglect. 

Prosecutors allege Randall left a baby dead and a two-year-old seriously hurt while the children were under his care in April. According to the criminal complaint, Randall said he accidentally dropped the 5-month-old when he heard gunshots but a medical examination found injuries linked to violent shaking or being thrown. 

Randall is due back in court in October. He will go to trial on November 25.
