31-year-old Ian Gulbin of Bridgewater has been charged with first degree manslaughter of his nearly one-year-old-son, Brayden Gulbin. This comes after an autopsy determined the ten-month-old's death was a homicide. Sometime between this past Sunday and Monday, Gulbin allegedly slammed his son, Brayden, into a hard object. The autopsy showed that Brayden suffered internal bleeding, cuts and bruises to his head and face, skull fractures, and other injuries. After allegedly causing these injuries, Ian Gulbin left his son in a bedroom, never seeking medical attention, and Brayden died as a result. The Oneida County Sheriff's Office responded to Gulbin's apartment on Doe Road in Bridgewater early Monday to assist medical with an unresponsive one-year-old. Brayden Gulbin was dead when the Sheriff's patrol arrived and an investigation was opened into the cause his death. The autopsy was performed by the Onondaga County Medical Examiner's office yesterday and the death ruled a homicide. Gulbin was arriagned tonight around six-thirty. He's being held without bail right now and the judge has assigned him a public defender. He'll have a preliminary hearing on Monday morning in the Town of Floyd Court. Gulbin has four prior felony charges--the judge mentioned this as another reason he'd be held in jail without bail until that next hearing.
