Md. Man Has Court Date In Daughter’s Slaying

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Brunswick man charged with murdering his 2-month-old daughter is due in court in Frederick for what prosecutors are calling a status conference.

The hearing in Circuit Judge G. Edward Dwyer’s chambers is set for Friday morning.

Lawyers for Jason Zirinsky, 26, have filed a motion seeking to block prosecutors from introducing evidence of
Zirinsky’s conviction in New Jersey for child endangerment. That 2004 case involved another daughter who suffered broken bones from what Zirinsky said was a fall from a bed.

He was charged in November in the beating death of his daughter Lexi at their home in Brunswick.

Zirinsky’s trial is set for October.
