Parents charged after infant falls from window in Rome

ROME — After a 1-year-old child fell out of a window on East Dominick Street in late May, both parents have been charged with endangerment, according to the Rome Police Department.

Police said the 1-year-old child is believed to have pushed out a window screen at a residence on East Dominick Street around 8 p.m. May 28, falling out of the second-story window and landing on the ground below. The child was discovered by a neighbor and was taken to the hospital for treatment. 

Following an investigation, police said it was determined that the mother was not home at the time, while the child's father was asleep in another room. Police said an investigation of the home also uncovered deplorable and unsanitary living conditions, including animal feces and garbage throughout the residence — with three children living in the conditions.

Jonathan Marino, 28, has been charged with four counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and Tonya N. Depasquale, 24, has been charged with three counts of endangering, police said. They are both scheduled to appear in Rome City Court.
