Mother, Infant Stabbed to Death, Baby's Father Arrested

 Suspect Arrested in Double Shooting on Father's Day


Bath, NY - Police in Steuben County released the names of a 25-year old woman and her three-month old son who were stabbed to death late Sunday night.

Officers were sent to a home on Mount View Road just after 10:30 p.m. Sunday after someone called 911 but did not speak. Shortly after that, Trieste Clayton, 25, and three-month old Xavier Michael Ashline were found stabbed to death.

Police say it appears to be related to a domestic incident.

The suspect is 23-year-old Bryan Ashline, the father of the infant.

Police said just after 5:00 a.m. Monday, On-Star notified state police that Ashline’s vehicle was located at a rest stop in Otsego County.  He was found sleeping in the vehicle and taken into police custody.

Authorities say Ashline and Clayton were involved in a domestic incident in August 2009 which resulted in Ashline being charged with 3rd degree assault. An Order of Protection was issued on behalf of Clayton.

Ashline was arraigned in Bath Village Court Monday and sent to Steuben County Jail without bail.

He'll be back in court Monday, June 28.
