Easton woman indicted on charges involving the death of her infant son
Easton, Maine (WABI) - An Aroostook County woman has been charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of her infant son.
According to the Maine Attorney General’s Office, 28-year-old Mariah Dobbins of Easton was indicted by a grand jury on July 14th and arrested on July 16th.
Court documents say Dobbins allegedly caused the death of one-year-old Jaden Raymond “recklessly or with criminal negligence” on March 19th.
A State Police spokesperson says they were called to a home on Center Road in Easton for the report of an unresponsive child.
The child was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
After an autopsy, the Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the child’s death a homicide, but the cause of death is not being released.
Court documents state Raymond was a “family or household member” of Dobbins.
Raymond’s obituary states he was Dobbins’ son.
Dobbins’ bail was set at $10,000.
She’s due in court for an arraignment on September 14th.
