Father charged in baby’s death waives preliminary hearing


The case of a Daviess County man accused of killing his infant son is going to a grand jury.

Austin Haaff waived his preliminary hearing on Monday afternoon in Daviess County Court.

He is charged with murder after he allegedly abused his son, 3-month-old Collin, at a home last month. The baby died of his injuries at a Louisville hospital.

Haaff was arraigned on the charge on May 2. A judge also denied a defense request to lower his bond.
