An indictment charging a father of manslaughter was filed in the Tel Aviv District Court on Tuesday, regarding an incident last year in which the suspect was accused of shaking his baby to death.

The indictment charges the Gush Dan resident with killing his baby son, and assaulting and abusing his twin sister.

According to the indictment the man shook his baby and hit him in the head twice. The baby died from his injuries two weeks after the suspected incident.

The prosecution seeks to prevent the father from leaving the country or contacting prosecution witnesses.

A gag order was imposed on the defendant's details.
