Danbury Man Held For Manslaughter In Child’s Death

DANBURY, Conn. (AP) _ A Danbury man has been charged with manslaughter in the death of a 19-month-old boy he was baby-sitting.

The News-Times reports (http://bit.ly/15HLhzM ) that Christian P. Williams was charged with first-degree manslaughter and risk of injury to a minor.

He was being held on bonds totaling $850,000. It was not known Wednesday morning if the 25-year-old Williams is represented by a lawyer.

The state medical examiner’s office said the child, Ayden Baskay, died from blunt-force injuries to the head.

Police said they received a 911 call at about 5:45 p.m. Sunday for a child who was not breathing. When authorities arrived, an unidentified person was trying to resuscitate the child. The boy was taken to Danbury Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The homicide was Danbury’s first in two years.
