Teen Arrested In Death Of 9-Month-Old Boy At Marble Hill Houses

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York City medical examiner says the 9-month-old baby boy left in the care of a teenager died from blunt impact injuries.

Ryan Ferrer’s death was ruled a homicide Wednesday. The medical examiner’s office also says he suffered bleeding in his brain and his internal organs were bruised and cut.

Authorities say 17-year-old Martin Quirindongo was babysitting the infant Tuesday morning while the mother was at work. Police responded to a 911 call, saying the child was unconscious when they arrived at the apartment located at the Marble Hill Houses housing project. The baby later died at a hospital.

Police have arrested Quirindongo and charged him with murder and manslaughter. The baby was of a healthy height and weight when he died.

    The PUNK kid was the mothers boyfriend! He’s 17 and the baby’s mother is 32. Is that even legal? She should be arrested as well.

    • john

      the average size of a new born is 8.6 lbs and 20 inches long. Thats a health baby.

  • Jennifer Marie Harr

    i would NEVER let anyone babysit my child its either my husband or me and no one else

  • cygon

    I sacrificed my career so I could take care of my children myself. GIving your k9ids over to the care of some punk teen that you hardly know is just INSANE.

  • Mike Jones

    They should bash his skull in for a few minutes and see how he ends up . That is what his fate should be.

  • SAD

    This is sooooo sad. I am so sick of reading about babies being beaten to death. I would love to wish harm on this sick monster, but fortunately I believe in “what comes around, goes around.”

    This filthy maggot deserves the same fate. Kill this piece of trash and rid the world of another POS!
