LaSalle man accused of murder found fit for trial

The 23-year-old LaSalle man accused of smothering his infant son has been found fit for trial.

Kenneth Herbst was briefly in court Thursday to set a new status hearing.

He’s due back next month.

No trial date has been set. Public defender Tim Cappellini says more time is needed to prepare as there are expert witnesses expected to testify.

Herbst was charged with killing his 8-week-old son in March last year.
