GLENS FALLS - The Glens Falls man accused of killing his toddler son is refusing to take a plea deal.

NewsChannel 13's media partners at The Post Star report Gary Waite turned down the offer that would require him to plead guilty to murder.

Waite is accused of killing his 15-month-old son, Jesse James Smith, last year. Police say he slammed the boy to the floor because he wouldn't stop crying.    

Waite maintains he's innocent.

A trial is scheduled for October.
