Trial of Dad Charged in Baby’s Death Getting Underway in Maine

Jury selection is scheduled to begin in manslaughter trial of Dustin Brown


A Bangor, Maine, man charged in the death of his 3-month-old son is due to stand trial this week.

Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday in the manslaughter trial of Dustin Brown, who was 18 when his son died nearly three years ago.

The Bangor Police Department said it responded to the home for a baby that was not breathing on Nov. 25, 2012. The infant was taken the hospital, where he died.

Brown told police the baby went limp during a feeding. An autopsy indicates the infant, Xander Brown, died from trauma.

Manslaughter carries a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
