CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A Cheyenne man accused of killing a 13-month-old boy and putting the child's body in a dumpster has waived his right to a preliminary hearing.

Logan Rogers on Thursday waived his right to a preliminary hearing, meaning his case will go directly to Laramie County District Court. The 23-year-old is charged with involuntary manslaughter and child endangering with a controlled substance in the death of Silas Anthony Ojeda of Cheyenne.

Investigators say Rogers told them the boy died after falling off a counter and that Rogers put his body in a trash container.

Investigators are still searching a landfill near Ault, Colorado, searching for any trace of the missing boy's body. The search began Nov. 1.
