Westchester father charged in murder of toddler



WHITE PLAINS – A 34-year-old Mount Vernon man has been charged
with murder in the death Monday of his two-year-old son.

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Carpino, Jr. said Lloyd Scott

After she returned home, the mother found the child in bed, unresponsive,
and took him to Montefiore Mount Vernon hospital where he was pronounced
dead. An autopsy revealed the toddler had suffered from blunt force trauma
to his body.

Mount Vernon Police charged Scott with murder; he was arraigned and remanded
