BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) - A Bowling Green man has been formally indicted for the murder of his 3-month-old son.

On Wednesday, a Wood County grand jury indicted Brian Steinmiller, 31, for murder, involuntary manslaughter and four counts of endangering children. All of the charges involve his son, Carter, who died May 5.

The murder charge is an unspecified felony, which could result in a sentence of 15 years to life in prison, should he be convicted.

The involuntary manslaughter charge, a first-degree felony, is an alternative charge regarding the death.

The first endangering count listed alleges Steinmiller did "recklessly abuse" the baby on the date of his death. That charge is a second-degree felony. A third-degree felony offense was also filed for Steinmiller's actions that day alleging he "did recklessly create a substantial risk" to the infant.

The final two endangering children charges allege prior abuse between the dates of Feb.1 and May 4. They are separate, but similar, to the charges filed regarding the defendant's actions on the date of his son's death.  

Steinmiller's case has been assigned to the Wood County Common Pleas Court. A bond hearing has been set for 10 a.m. Thursday.

Steinmiller remains in custody at the Wood County Jail. He is currently being held on a $300,000 bond set by the Bowling Green Municipal Court.
