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.

Bangor - You've seen his work on the cover of Down East Magazine and in the Boston Globe...But Thursday night, Brian Vanden Brink spoke to members of the Eastern Maine Camera Club, offering an after dinner treat for those with a taste for photography and architecture.

Brink, who currently lives in Camden, is getting ready to debut his new book, Iconic: Perspective on the man Made World.

The cover photo is of a lifeguard shack in Coronado, California...hopefully providing warm thoughts for those who braved this frigid night.

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.
