ROTTERDAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A Rotterdam man was sentenced on Tuesday for the 2020 murder of his 4-year-old foster child. Dequan Greene will spend 25 years to life in state prison.
On December 20, 2020, first responders were called to a home on Broadway in the town of Rotterdam for a child in respiratory distress. Charles “Charlie” Garay was later pronounced dead at Ellis Hospital.
Investigators said he suffered injuries to his liver and intestines. His 5-year-old brother was also injured.
After pleading not guilty, Greene was convicted on murder and manslaughter charges in October.
