Infant death investigation lands an Albion man in lock-up.
A lengthy investigation into the death of an infant by Albion Police has ended with an Albion resident behind bars.
The two year-long investigation resulted in the arrest of 29 year old Nicholas Monacelli of Eagle Harbor Road on charges of Reckless Endangerment and Endangering the welfare of a child.
Police were called in July of 2017 to a home on Beechwood Boulevard in Albion where officers discovered a severely injured 11 month old Damon Carter.
The boy died the following day from his severe head injury while at Strong.
Investigators say that Monacelli “knowingly and recklessly” mistreated Damon while the child was under his care resulting in the child’s injuries.
He was committed in lieu of $1,000 dollars bail to the Orleans County Jail with his next Gaines Town Court date scheduled for May 8th.
