OSHKOSH, Wis. — An Oshkosh father has been convicted of causing his infant son’s death.

Twenty-nine-year-old Cory Lyons pleaded no contest Monday to first-degree reckless homicide in the Nov. 29, 2018, death of his 7-week-old son. A criminal complaint says Lyons admitted he was frustrated by the baby’s crying and shook the child five or six times.

The complaint says a CT scan at the hospital revealed the child suffered a brain injury which led to the infant’s death. Sentencing is scheduled for March 26.
