Boyfriend of toddler’s mom charged with killing her two-year-old

MILTON – Police arrested a Milton man and charged him with murder in connection with the death of his girlfriend’s two-year-old son.

Kenneth Stahli, 26, was charged with killing Mason Decosmo. An autopsy conducted on Wednesday revealed the cause of death to be blunt force. Police said the investigation revealed that the child was the victim of physical abuse over the course of several days at the hands of Stahli.

Stahli was charged and sent to the Ulster County Jail without bail.           

Ulster County District Attorney Holley Carnright called it “a horrible” situation.

“It’s hard to imagine inflicting injuries like this to anyone, but to a two-year-old child is hard to imagine; pretty sad,” Carnright said.

Police were called to the home at 16 Walnut Park Lane in Milton on Tuesday afternoon for a report of an unresponsive child. Marlborough Police and EMS arrived at the scene and CPR was administered. The child was pronounced dead at Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepsie.

The case will be presented to a grand jury next week.
