Criminal charges are piling up against a man whose infant son was missing all summer and later found dead. And we may now know how the boy died. YNN's Andrew Sorensen explains the latest developments in the case of Levon Wameling and his father, Jevon.
UTICA, N.Y. -- Police have now released that Levon Wameling had a one inch skull fracture when he died. The infant has been missing since May, but police found his remains in the Mohawk River earlier this month.
Meanwhile, his father, Jevon Wameling's stay behind bars continues to stretch while he faces charges of burglary and conspiracy.
Wameling first made headlines in June when his lawyer notified police about his missing son two weeks after baby Levon disappeared. Levon's remains were identified earlier this week after they were pulled from the Mohawk River.
Police labeled Jevon a person of interest early on and court records filed this week show they were actually listening into his conversations.
And while no charges have been filed in connection with the boy's death, police do say Jevon allegedly arranged to sell crack cocaine and heroin during several calls between June 18th and August 15th. Police have slapped him and three others with fourth degree conspiracy. Courtney Blackshear, 25, Ashley LaComb, 21, and Wakeme 'Big Man' Littlejohn, 35, are his co-defendants.
Wameling was already in Oneida County Jail for burglary charges. He allegedly stole $1,200 and jewelry from a relative's house.
Both cases are headed to a grand jury.
There are still no charges in Levon's disappearance, but Utica Police say they have forwarded the case to the District Attorney. The Oneida County District Attorney says he's assigned three assistant district attorneys to the case. They'll review the evidence and might request further investigation. He says they could eventually send the case to a grand jury when they feel comfortable with it.
