The Orleans County D-A says that two misdemeanor charges were all that could be brought against an Albion man in the death two years ago of an 11-month old boy. 29 year old Nicholas Monacelli was charged this week with Reckless Endangerment and and Child Endangerment in the death of little Damon Carter in July of 2017.
D-A Joseph Cardone said Monachelli was caring for the child of his girlfriend when the baby slipped from his grasp during a bath.
The child was not Manachelli’s.
Cardone told The Daily News the investigation revealed Monachelli’s actions were not intentional.
Monachelli has been released on $1,000 bail.
There could soon be a ban on the sale of dogs from puppy mills in New York
The bill introduced by Queens State Senator Michael Gianaris would cover the sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits from unregulated breeding facilities. Gianaris says puppy mill animals are mistreated from birth, and often develop behavioral or physical health problems later in life despite their high price tags.
He has some star power backing his bill. Soprano’s actress Edie Falco, took part in Gianaris’ news conference today in New York City.
The Buffalo Bills have added a player they hope boosts their defense. They chose University of Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver with the ninth overall pick in last night’s NFL Draft. Oliver is likely to be a starter on opening day when the Bills visit the New York Jets.
There’s sad news to report on the health of a Buffalo Bills fan who calls himself Pancho Billa.
Ezra Castro has announced he’s entering hospice care after cancer that started in his spine spread to several organs.
Castro was supposed to announce the team’s first round pick in last night’s NFL Draft, but didn’t travel due to his health.
The 39-year-old says he appreciated the support he’s received from the Bills and fellow fans.
Local police agencies are holding their annual prescription drug take back tomorrow.
