ALBANY, N.Y. -- The 18-year-old Port Ewen man arrested in connection with last week's death of a one-month-old child will be arraigned in Albany City Criminal Court Saturday morning. 

Following an investigation, Albany detectives arrested Cavadeas J. Taylor Friday night for Murder in the 2nd degree.

On Thursday, June 13, at around 9:00 a.m., Albany police responded to Albany Medical Center for reports of a child with injuries. Upon arrival, hospital staff told detectives that the child, a four-week-old male from Kingston, had sustained a severe head injury.

The child died Monday afternoon at the hospital as result of those injuries.

Taylor is described as a family friend and a caretaker to the child.
