A 24-year-old resident of Sebastian, Abel Guan Marcano, was arrested last Thursday and charged with Aggravated Manslaughter of a Child.
Marcano, who resides in the 100 block of Cardinal Drive in Sebastian, is currently being held at the Indian River County Jail on a $2 million bond.
The arrest warrant alleges that Marcano, who served as a caregiver, is responsible for the tragic death of a child due to a failure to provide adequate care.
According to court documents, Marcano allegedly neglected to offer the necessary care, supervision, and essential services required to maintain the child’s physical and mental well-being.
Furthermore, it is alleged that Marcano did not make reasonable efforts to protect the child from abuse, neglect, or exploitation by others, ultimately resulting in the child’s death.
Unfortunately, there is limited information available regarding the specifics of the case at this time.
We will provide updates as additional information becomes available.
