Charges Held in Falls Township Toddler Homicide Case

Charges against a Falls Township man were held for trial in Common Pleas Court after a preliminary hearing this morning.

Shawn Robert Felmey, 45, is charged with criminal homicide and endangering the welfare of children in the Dec. 18 killing of a 22-month old boy. The toddler was found dead of inflicted head trauma, an injury a medical examiner says must have required substantial force to inflict.

Following an extensive investigation by Falls Township Police and Bucks County Detectives, police in Melbourne, Florida, took Felmey into custody May 15.

Following Wednesday’s hearing, District Judge Jan Vislosky ordered Felmey remanded to the Bucks County Correctional Facility where he remains held without bail.

Felmey’s formal arraignment is set for September 14th .

The case is assigned for prosecution to Deputy District Attorney Mary Kate Kohler.
