Bronx man indicted in connection to death of his 15-year-old stepson
A Bronx man has been indicted for manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide in connection to the death of his 15-year-old stepson Corde Scott.
Police have confirmed that the cause of Scott’s death was due to a lack of oxygen. The NYPD reported that Tyrese Minter was released from jail one month prior to attacking Scott and was on parole.
Investigators say Minter got into a dispute with Scott, allegedly putting him in a neck hold and cutting off his oxygen supply.
Minter has been released and is due back in court on June 20.
