Arlington, Vermont - March 18, 2010

Vermont State Police have arrested an Arlington man in the death of his 5-week-old son.

Police say Russ Van Vleck, 27, called 911 last October to report his son was unresponsive. The infant, Colin Van Vleck, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The medical examiner ruled the baby's death a homicide. The autopsy found internal injuries consistent with being shaken.

Police say Russ Van Vleck was the only person with the child at the time of the death, and the child's injuries happened at the time of his death.

Russ Van Vleck will be arraigned for manslaughter in Bennington District Court Friday.
