A joint investigation between the New York State Police at Otsego County Sheriff’s Department has resulted in the arrest of Kimberly N. Steeley, age 27 of Decatur, NY.  Steeley was arrested on a Grand Jury indictment and charged with two counts of the Class C Felony of Manslaughter in the second degree. 

The arrest stems from a June 2018 investigation into the deaths of her twin infant children, Liam and Bonde Steeley.  Kimberly Steeley was arraigned at the Otsego County Court Wednesday and remanded to the Otsego County Jail on $10,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond.  A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 3, 2019.
