    Police Make Arrest in Ludlow, Vt. Infant Death Case
    Vermont State Police
    Tyler Pollender-Savery, 23, of Ludlow, Vermont, has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with 11-month-old Karsen Rickert's January 2018 death.

    A Vermont man is under arrest for his alleged involvement in the death of an infant, according to state police on Monday.

    Tyler Pollender-Savery, 23, of Ludlow, allegedly killed 11-month-old Karsen Rickert in January, according to the police investigation.

    The baby died after police found him unresponsive at the home of his mother, Abigail Wood, and her boyfriend, Pollender-Savery. Pollender-Savery is not the child's father.

    In June, the New Hampshire Chief Medical Examiner's Office determined the child's death was caused by asphyxia due to strangulation and/or smothering.
