Bail Set at $2M for Itasca County Murder Suspect

Bail has been set at $2 million for a Deer River man accused of killing his 2-month-old son.

Court documents say Emery Jenkins, 38, bit the baby because he was crying in October 2014.

The boy later died at the hospital.

Jenkins faces two counts of first degree murder and one count of second degree murder.

A trial has been set for January 25.

Jenkins is currently being held in the Itasca County Jail.
