The Bucks County District Attorneyâ€™s Office has charged 26 year old Nicholas Wyllie with involuntary manslaughter and other offenses in connection with the death of his two year old son, Benjamin Austin Smith, after he found his dadâ€™s 45 caliber handgun and accidentally shot himself on September 12th at the home of his grandparents in Milford.
Smith died a short time later at Saint Lukeâ€™s Hospital on the day of the incident. According to Police, the boy was heading to his room on September 12th to watch the movie â€œWinnie The Poohâ€ but instead went to his fatherâ€™s room and found the loaded gun. Wyllie was released on 50,000 unsecured bail Wednesday. A formal arraignment date of October 28th has been scheduled.
