GLOVERSVILLE – A man has been indicted in the August death of a 5-month-old child and injuries to two other children in Gloversville, the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office said.

Isiah L. Lockett, 35, was indicted Thursday on a top count of first-degree manslaughter, as well as 12 other charges related to the baby’s death and the injuries to the two other children.

A District Attorney’s Office release did not identify the child who died.

Lockett was arraigned on the new indictment and ordered held.

The investigation began Aug. 4 when Gloversville Police learned of injuries to three children at 17 First Ave., then age 6 years, 8 months and 5 months, officials said. Three days after the investigation began, the 5-month-old child then passed away.

An autopsy was conducted and the investigation continued by the Gloversville Police Department, with assistance from the state police Major Crimes Unit.

The findings were then presented to a Fulton County grand jury which then indicted Lockett on the 13-count indictment.

Related to the child’s death, Lockett faces one count each of first-degree manslaughter and second-degree manslaughter, two counts of second-degree assault, one count of first-degree reckless endangerment, all felonies, and one misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child.

Related to the 8-month-old, Lockett faces two counts of second-degree assault, one count of first-degree reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

Related to the 6-year-old, Lockett faces one count of second-degree assault and misdemeanor criminal obstruction of breathing and endangering the welfare of a child.

Lockett was arraigned Thursday and ordered held without bail.
