News

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – According to Albany County District Attorney’s office, Anthony Ojeda and Neil Garzon have failed to appear for their court dates, and bench warrants have been issued for their arrests.

Anthony Ojeda was charged for the murder of his 6-week-old infant son in December of 2020 after his child ingested meth and Ojeda did not seek proper medical treatment.

Ojeda then pleaded guilty to manslaughter, but then withdrew that guilty plea and has now failed to appear for his trial.

Anthony Ojeda charges:

  • Murder in the Second Degree
  • Manslaughter in the Second Degree
  • Endangering the Welfare of a Child

Neil Garzon is accused of endangering the welfare of a child.

The Albany County District Attorney’s Office tells NEWS10 ABC the men were not subject to wearing ankle monitors. They were being monitored by the Albany County Department of Probation and until last month they were compliant with their release conditions.

The U.S. Marshals Office has been tapped to help track the men down. Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact the Albany County District Attorney’s Office or the Cohoes Police Department.
