A Chicago man charged in the strangling death of his 14-month old son is due in court Tuesday.

Donald Johnson, 30, is charged with first-degree murder.

His son, Dontrell Johnson, was found floating in Lake Michigan last Thursday.

An autopsy revealed the baby died of strangulation.

Dontrell had been missing since a week ago Monday, when his father picked him up from a relative's home.
