Ladd Acquitted Of Toddler's Death



Casey Ladd is not guilty. The 24-year old was on trial for first-degree murder in the death of 11-month old Aiden Ladd, who died last August. He was also found not guilty of first-degree child abuse. Aiden died while under Casey's care, his mother Brittany Ritlaw was away at the time. She testified this week, believing Ladd was responsible for her son's death. The "Herald-Palladium" reports police were called last summer to a Watervliet Township apartment where a child had stopped breathing. After numerous attempts of CPR, Aiden died at a hospital. His body was covered in bruises and he had multiple internal injuries. After the verdict was read, Ladd's sister said “everyone who knew him knows that there was no way he was capable of this.”
