Man accused of beating son to death denied bond
BATON ROUGE- A state district judge has denied a request to set bail for a man accused of beating his young son to death in June.
Judge Don Johnson refused to set bond Wednesday for 46-year-old Michael Anthony Robertson, father of eight-year-old Xzayvion Riley. The ruling marked the second time a judge denied bail for Robertson.
The Advocate reports state District Judge Trudy White initially denied bail for Robertson on June 18.
Robertson and 32-year-old Lavaughn Riley were both indicted Aug. 9 on first-degree murder charges in the June 12 death of their son.
Both parents have pleaded not guilty.
