A 30-year-old Fort Edward man has been charged with murdering, yes murdering, his three month old child over the weekend. Sunday afternoon, around 2pm, the Glens Falls Hospital called police informing them that the infant had been brought to the hospital with life threatening injuries.

After investigating the father, Kevin Wayne King,  police claim King:

Grabbed the child by the torso, shook him, and then slammed the child down into the carpeted living room floor.


King's son, Brent, was taken to Albany Medical Center where he later died from his injuries.

Kevin King is currently being held in the Washington County Jail without bail, charged with second-degree murder and first-degree manslaughter.


While I'm not a huge fan of the death penalty, special circumstances call for special punishments. Is this one of them?
