Bangor Teen Accused of Killing Infant son, Appears in Court

Bangor - It was 18 year-old Dustin Brown's first time before a judge, after he was arrested and indicted by a grand jury yesterday. Brown pleaded not guilty in a Penobscot County court room after being charged with manslaughter for the death of his 3 month-old son, Xander Brown.

This occurred back on November 25th, when Bangor Fire responded to 94 Thatcher Street where they found the baby not breathing... he later died at Eastern Maine Medical Center.

Now, an affidavit from the state says he died from head injuries.

Brown is at the Penobscot County jail on $50,000 cash bail. If released, he's barred from possessing firearms, and having contact with the baby's mother. He'll make his next court appearance in May.

Authorities have arrested, and Penobscot County grand jurors have indicted, a Bangor man -- accused of killing his 3-month-old son.

Dustin Brown, 18, is charged with manslaughter.

Bangor Police Lt. Tim Reid says emergency responders found Xander Brown unconscious, and not breathing, at his parent's Thatcher Street home, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. 

Paramedics transported the infant to Eastern Maine Medical Center, where he died.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner peformed a prompt autopsy, and determined the baby's cause of death to be "inflicted trauma."

Investigators are tight-lipped about the circumstances surrounding Xander's death, but do say the 3-month-old had serious head injuries.

Reid says interviews with several first-hand witnesses led detectives to pick Dustin Brown up, Wednesday.

Brown's arraignment is scheduled for Thursday in Bangor.
