NH parents being held on bail in connection with baby son's death
CONCORD — A mother and father appeared in Concord district court Wednesday on charges that they killed their infant son.
Police arrested Bradford Ross, 25, and Kayla Austin, 21, on Tuesday on charges of negligent homicide, manslaughter, and prohibited conduct.
The arrests stem from an investigation into the death of their two-month-old son in August 2016.
On Aug. 1, 2016, police responded to a small trailer in the Penacook section of Concord for a report of an unresponsive infant. During their initial investigation, detectives uncovered evidence that Ross and Austin were both using and distributing methamphetamine.
Police alleged that the two month old child was exposed to and ingested methamphetamine which contributed to his death.
On Wednesday, a judge set Ross's bail at $100,000 on each charge. Austin's bail was set at $20,000 on each charge. They have been ordered not to have contact with each other.
The investigation is ongoing and Concord police have asked anyone with information pertaining to this case to contact Lt. Sean Ford at 603-225-8600 or the Concord Regional Crimeline at 603-226-3100.
