NORWALK — A Bridgeport man was charged Monday in the death of his infant son last year, police said.. The 5-month-old child was found not breathing in an apartment on Ely Avenue last May, police said. The baby was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Jorge E. Chiclana, 22, of Manila Place, was charged with second-degree manslaughter and risk of injury, police said. He was tracked down with the help of the U.S. Marshals Service Violent Fugitive Task Force.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner released a report on the child's death in March that said the infant had an elevated amounts of alcohol in his system.
