Man Arrested in Death of Stepson 

A man from Cutler has been arrested and charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of his 2-year-old stepson.

William Bryson is being held at the Washington County Jail.

The manslaughter charge stems from the death of Bryson’s stepson, Damon Nason.

The toddler died at Eastern Maine Medical Center on March second…a day after he suffered a traumatic head injury.

Damon’s aunt tells TV5 the boy was in Bryson’s care when the injury happened.

She says Bryson told police Damon fell in the bathtub.

But the aunt says doctors told family members such extensive injuries could not have been caused by a fall.

Bryson was arrested Friday night…he’s being held on a hundred thousand dollars bail and is expected to be arraigned Monday morning.

TV5 has made repeated calls to investigators in regards to the case…they have not returned our calls.
