Man Now Charged With Child Abuse After Baby Dies Last December

Posted: Updated:

We have new details in the death of a Missaukee County toddler.

Investigators say a man also abused the boy before the he died.

Cole Gilde is accused of abusing Payton Disbrow while he was living in the home with the child and his mother.

Payton was just 14-months-old when he died in December near Mcbain.

Gilde was arrested Friday in Missaukee County. Police say he was the mother's live-in boyfriend at the time of the abuse.

The child's mother, Brittani Grabon, was arrested shortly after Payton's death. Police say the child was not brought to the hospital until it was too late.

Brittani Grabon is still in the Missaukee County jail awaiting her trial.

Kyle Mitchell and Photojournalist Marillo Palmer have an update on the case.
