Jury Seated in Kaiser Trial, Opening Arguments Scheduled to Begin Monday
ST. CLOUD -- Opening arguments are scheduled to start next week in the trial of an Albany man accused of killing his infant son.
The Stearns County Attorney's Office says jury selection in the trial of 34-year-old Robert Kaiser has concluded and the trial is expected to begin with jury instructions and opening arguments Monday morning.
A Stearns County grand jury indicted Kaiser on one count of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder. He's been jailed since his arrest in September 2014.
The child was brought to the Albany Hospital after he was having difficulty breathing and was suffering seizures. The boy was airlifted to Children's Hospital where he died.
The boy died of a traumatic brain injury, likely caused by shaking.
