Saginaw Man Arraigned in Son’s Death

A father arrested for killing his toddler son in Saginaw has been formally charged. Tony Lipsey-Jackson was arraigned Wednesday on a charge of open murder and first-degree child abuse for the death of his son, 20-month-old Tony Jackson.

Police said the child died after being brought to the hospital on January 8. A Saginaw police officer working there went to the emergency room to investigate reports of the child’s serious injuries. The parents were questioned at police headquarters following the child’s death. The father was arrested after the police investigation determined the boy had been injured at his home on Dillon Street.

Lipsey-Jackson is being held without bond in the Saginaw County Jail.
