DURANT, OK -- The trial for a Durant man accused of killing his fourteen month old son is set for September.

Marin Clay Allison is charged with murder in the first degree and child abuse for allegedly killing his son Ethan at their home in June last year.

Police say Allison originally told investigators that his son had fallen accidentally, but a later report revealed that Ethan had a massive skull fracture to the back of his head.

Allison's jury trial will begin sometime in September.
