Somersworth man charged with smothering child

SOMERSWORTH — A 2-year-old boy was smothered and a Somersworth man charged with manslaughter, authorities said Saturday.

Chief Medical Examiner Thomas Andrew determined the child, Noah York, died from smothering and his death was ruled a homicide.

Jared Pope, 30, of Somersworth, was charged with manslaughter for allegedly causing the child's death. He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in the 7th Circuit District Court in Dover.

Police, firefighters and emergency personnel responded at 5:48 p.m. to 231 High St. after a 911 call – which was placed from Apt. 2 – reported a toddler was in distress.

Ambulance crews transported York to Wentworth-Douglass Hospital in Dover where he was later pronounced dead.

It is unclear whether York or Pope lived in the apartment.

Somersworth police referred all inquiries to the Attorney General's office.

Geoff Ward, an attorney with the AG's office, said state investigators continue to look into the matter.
