A Carlisle man charged with homicide after admitting that he shook a 10-week-old infant who later died waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday, according to court documents.

Jason Bugajski, 31, was charged with criminal homicide, aggravated assault, aggravated assault of a child younger than 13, endangering the welfare of children and recklessly endangering another person in the March 28 incident.

State police at Carlisle and Cumberland Goodwill EMS responded to a home in the 200 block of Bonnybrook Road in South Middleton Township and found an infant in need of advanced medical treatment. The infant was taken to UPMC Pinnacle Carlisle, where she was pronounced dead, police said.

The baby had physical injuries and an autopsy confirmed internal injuries. Bugajski admitted he had shaken the baby violently, causing the injuries, police said.

A formal arraignment before the Cumberland County Court of Common Pleas is scheduled for 9 a.m. July 18.

Bail was denied, and Bugajski remained in Cumberland County Prison.
