SAYLORSBURG, Pa. - A Monroe County man is heading to trial in the death of his 4-year-old son.

Ryan Koch is facing involuntary manslaughter and other charges.

Police say his son died back in June after getting a hold of a gun and shooting himself at the family's home on Ash Lane in Saylorsburg.

A drug charge was added during Koch's preliminary hearing Friday. But the judge also reduced his bail from $200,000 to $100,000.
