FORT EDWARD, N.Y. -- The lawyer for Kevin King, a man accused of killing his own son, says there isn't enough evidence to support the murder count.

On August 11th, 2013, authorities say King's infant son, Brett, was brought to the Glens Falls hospital with severe head injuries and internal injuries. State police say King admitted that he was responsible. King allegedly told them he became frustrated when the baby wouldn't stop crying which lead him to pick the baby up, squeeze him and throw him to the ground.

His lawyer is trying to pursue the defense that King's actions were the result of quote "extreme emotional disturbance" that resulted from the baby's crying.

King faces 25 years to life if found guilty, and is currently being held in the Washington County Jail without bail. He pleaded not guilty to Murder, Manslaughter, and Endangering the Welfare of a Child charges in November. However, authorities say King admitted that he was responsible.

He's set to appear in court at 1 p.m. Thursday.
