QUEENSBURY — Michael Flint, Jr., who has been charged with killing his roommate’s infant son, may plead guilty in the case as early as Wednesday.
It was unclear if the condition of any plea deal would be cooperation against the mother of the child, who has been charged with second-degree manslaughter for allegations she didn’t protect the baby from Flint or seek medical help for the child when she should have.
Officials have said several times there would be no plea deal offer in the case, in light of the allegations that Flint brutally beat, choked and bit 7-month-old Colbi Bullock to death in November.
Flint lived in an apartment with Colbi's mother Alicia Lewie. He was not the baby’s father but cared for the boy while Lewie was at work in the days before his death.
Lewie was charged because numerous people saw the bruised, battered baby in the days before he died, and she was told to take him to the hospital by staff at Warren-Hamilton Counties Community Action. She lied to them and told them she had taken the baby to the hospital.
Flint, 22, is being held in Warren County Jail; Lewie, 22, is free on bail.
