A northwest suburban father is facing charges after prosecutors say he violently shook his 2-month-old son. Police say 20-year-old Travis Myers of Lakemoor shook the child while the baby's mother was attending school.

The boy is now 5 months old and remains in the hospital on a feeding tube. He's being treated for brain trauma, detached retinas and several fractures.

Myers is due back in court April 5.
