Washington, DC – The U.S. Marshals are looking for two New York men who are wanted in connection with an infant's murder on Dec. 3, 2019.
Anthony Ojeda, 40, initially was charged in the City of Cohoes, NY, with second-degree manslaughter and second-degree assault. On June 2, Ojeda was indicted by the Albany County Court, NY, on second-degree murder, second-degree manslaughter, and Endangering the Welfare of a Child following the death of his son. On May 25, Ojeda's husband Neil Garzon, 32, was indicted by the Albany County Court on Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
The baby had ingested methamphetamine while in Ojeda's care, but Ojeda failed to immediately call for medical care.
The court issued bench warrants for the arrests of Ojeda and Garzon after they failed to show up for two court appearances in August in Albany County Court.
Investigators believe both men are together. They were last seen on August 19 at the Fuel Express located at 2754 U.S. Highway 75 in Lebo, Kansas. They were in a black Nissan Sentra four-door sedan bearing Indiana license plate, FL905AAR.
Ojeda is approximately 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs 145 pounds. Garzon is approximately 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs 175 pounds.
The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the capture of Ojeda.
Anyone with information about either man's location is urged to contact the nearest USMS District Office, submit a tip to the U.S. Marshals Service at 877-WANTED2, or via USMS Tips.
