Teen sentenced in death of infant baby

ALBANY -- The teen who pleaded guilty last month to manslaughter in the death of a 5-week-old baby boy was sentenced on Friday.

Cavadeas Taylor, 19, from Kingston was sentenced to 15 years in prison and 5 years of post release supervision for his role in the infant's death. He originally pleaded not guilty to murder charges stemming from the baby boy's death last June. Police say the infant was killed at a home on Second Street.

The boy's father, Seth Knox, Sr., is charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Police say Knox did not seek medical attention for the boy, who was having a hard time breathing.
