A father accused of killing his baby in La Salle appeared back in court Friday morning.

A psychiatrist has been given more time to study the mental fitness of 23-year-old Kenneth Herbst.  His next status hearing is Thursday, January 16th.

Herbst has pleaded not guilty to three counts of murder.  He is accused of holding his baby boy’s face into a pillow, causing the two-month old to die last March. Herbst is locked up inside of the La Salle County Jail, needing $200,000 to bond out.
