A Town of Bridgewater man has been arrested after an investigation into the death of a 13-month old child.
The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office says 31-year old Ian Gulbin is charged with manslaughter in the death of his son, Brayden Gulbin.
Deputies were called to a home on Doe Road in Bridgewater on Monday to assist medical personnel with an unresponsive infant.
When they arrived, the infant was dead.
Six weeks before the incident the child’s mother, Anastasia Hogen, had moved into Gulbin’s home, located on Doe Road in the Town of Bridgewater. Prior to Hogen moving into the Bridgewater house, the couple lived together in Sherburne, New York.
The Sheriff’s Office says that Hogen, who works the night shift, left for her job in Norwich on Sunday, November 17, 2013 at 9:30pm. Before leaving she checked in on the infant and her older son, an eight year old.
When she returned home from work at 7:20am on Monday, November 18, 2013 she prepared a bottle for Brayden and brought it into his bedroom. She found him lying lifeless in the crib and called 911.
The Onondaga County Medical Examiner’s Office performed a full autopsy on Tuesday, November 19, 2013. The infant’s body showed bruising, skull fractures, internal injuries, and trauma. The death was ruled a homicide.
At 6:30pm on Wendesday, November 20, 2013 Ian Gulbin was charged with first degree manslaughter. He is being held at the Oneida County and was denied bail.
Gulbin is scheduled to appear in court in Floyd on Monday.
