5-month-old baby dead, 8-month-old injured & young child strangled by alleged killer: Police

A New York man killed an infant and seriously injured two other children, according to the Fulton County police.

Times Union reports that authorities arrested Isiah Lockett on Thursday after a 5-month-old baby died in August 2020. First responders arrived at a home in Gloversville and rushed the infant to Albany Medical Center. He passed away three days later.

Investigators allege that Lockett killed the 5-month-old, injured an 8-month-old, and obstructed the 6-year-old’s “breathing or blood circulation.” He’s now charged with:

  • First-degree manslaughter
  • Second-degree manslaughter
  • Criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation
  • Second-degree assault (five counts)
  • First-degree reckless endangerment (two counts)
  • Endangering the welfare of a child (three counts)

News 10 reports that an autopsy was performed on the baby, but the manner of death was not released.
