GRISWOLD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut state police have accused a Griswold woman of killing her 6-week-old infant son by suffocating him with a blanket for 20 minutes and waiting hours before calling 911. Crystal Czyzewski was arrested Monday on charges of manslaughter and risk of injury to a minor. She was detained on $550,000 bail after a court arraignment Tuesday in Norwich. It was not immediately clear if she has a lawyer who could respond to the allegations. State police say Czyzewski told detectives the baby and her 5-year-old child were crying on Nov. 17 and it was too much for her to handle. The baby was pronounced dead at a hospital on Sunday.
