March 24, 2016 -- Acting Westchester County District Attorney James A. McCarty announced that Carlton Brown (DOB 12/18/83) of 2935 Holland Ave., Bronx, NY, pled guilty today to the following:

  • one count of Manslaughter in the First Degree, a class "B" Felony,

relating to the death of his girlfriend's two-and-one-half-year-old toddler, Kali Mack.

On Aug. 31, 2014 at 9:32 p.m. the defendant telephoned 911 indicating a child was in distress. Emergency Services arrived and indicated to firefighters that she fell off the bed.

She was removed to Montifiore Mount Vernon Hospital.

On Sept. 1, 2014 at 1:04 a.m. the toddler was transferred to The Children's Hospital at Montifiore in the Bronx and admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

Medical personnel from both hospitals called in reports to the State Central Registry. The District Attorney's Office was notified and the Mount Vernon Police Department assigned detectives to investigate.

On Sept. 3, 2014, the victim was pronounced dead.

On Sept. 4, 2014 an autopsy was performed by the New York City Medical Examiner's Office. The determination was that the cause of death was abusive head trauma and the manner of death is homicide.

In court, the defendant admitted to subjecting Kali Mack to blunt force trauma about her head and forcibly shaking her body thereby causing her to sustain abusive head trauma, retinal hemorrhages and causing her death.

Defendant's remand continues.

The sentencing date is on July 28, 2016.

The defendant faces a maximum sentence of twenty five years in state prison.

Assistant District Attorney Doreen Lloyd, Chief of the Child Abuse Bureau and Assistant District Attorney Mary Clark DiRusso are prosecuting the case.
