Albany police have charged an Ulster County teen in the death of a 1-month-old child last week.
Cavadeas J. Taylor, 18, of Port Ewen, was arrested tonight by Albany detectives following an investigation that began June 13, after police were notified by Albany Medical Center of a child from Kingston being treated for a severe head injury. That child, who has not been identified by police, died Monday afternoon at the hospital.
Police said Taylor was a friend of the child's family and a caretaker for the child. He was charged with second-degree murder and is scheduled to be arraigned Saturday morning in Albany City Criminal Court.
