WYOMING, Mich. — Two men have been charged in connection with the death of a 5-month-old infant.

Joseph Nguyen, the baby’s uncle, was arraigned in Wyoming District Court Wednesday on a charge of  involuntary manslaughter, according to the Kent County Prosecutor’s Office.  He allegedly put pillows and blankets over the crying infant in an attempt to quiet him down.

The baby’s father, Viet Nguyen, is charged with lying to police during the investigation.

According to the prosecutor’s office, the two men brought the baby to the hospital Dec. 26.
