    Vermont State Police
    Tyler Pollender-Savery, 23, of Ludlow, Vermont, has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with 11-month-old Karsen Rickert's January 2018 death.

    A Vermont man is under arrest for his alleged involvement in the death of an infant, according to state police on Monday.

    Tyler Pollender-Savery, 23, of Ludlow, allegedly killed 11-month-old Karsen Rickert in January, according to the police investigation.

    The baby died after police found him unresponsive at the home of his mother, Abigail Wood, and her boyfriend, Pollender-Savery. Pollender-Savery is not the child's father.

    In June, the New Hampshire Chief Medical Examiner's Office determined the child's death was caused by asphyxia due to strangulation and/or smothering.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
