New details tonight in the investigation into the Bridgewater man accused of killing his son. 33-year-old Ian Gulbin was charged with first degree manslaughter after the death of 13-month-old Brayden Gulbin. Today Eyewitess News learned that an eight-year-old was in the home at the time Ian Gulbin allegedly slammed his baby son into a hard object. The eight-year-old is the son of Gulbin's live-in girlfriend, Anastasia Hogen, who was at work when the incident took place. Gulbin and his girlfriend moved into an apartment on this road in the town of Bridgewater about six weeks ago. With them--their nearly one-year-old and Hogen's 8-year-old son. Sunday evening, Hogen left for her night-shift around nine-thirty--it was the last time she saw her baby son alive.
"She arrived home, she prepared a bottle and brought a bottle into Brayden's bedroom, upon entering the bedroom, she found her son Brayden lying lifeless on the floor of the bedroom near the crib," said Oneida County Sheriff Rob Maciol.
That was around seven-thirty Monday morning--she immediately called 911. But Bridgewater paramedics weren't able to help, and called in the Oneida County Sheriff's Office."
When police first responded to this home on Doe Road they were told that Brayden had fallen out of his crib...but the autopsy revealed a very different story.
"The child's injuries consisted of several contusions, skull fractures and internal injuries," said Sheriff Maciol. Brayden's death was ruled a homicide by medical examiners on Tuesday. Gulbin never sought medical attention, allegedly leaving Brayden in the bedroom where he died. He was arrested yesterday afternoon and arraigned in the Town of Floyd Court last night. Sheriff Maciol says all units worked tirelessly through the day and night.
"They did not stop until last night when the individual responsible for this was locked up in jail, most of the people that worked on this case were parents also so like I say every case is difficult but extreme cases like this one are very difficult," he said.
Gulbin is being held without bail at the Onieda County Jail because he's had four prior felony arrests in a different state. He's due back in the Town of Floyd Court Monday morning.
