Jeffrey Deats

Jeffrey L. Deats, the 28-year-old man charged with manslaughter in the death eight days ago of Chandler Zuchs, is now listed in stable condition following an apparent suicide attempt last night at the Genesee County Jail.

This morning Deats was listed in critical condition.

Baby Chandler died at age 6 months. The Monroe County Medical Examiner reported that Chandler suffered brain injuries.

Deats was arrested Wednesday following a police investigation into the death.  

He was jailed on $50,000 cash bail or $100,000.

Deats was reportedly found hanging from bedsheets in his cell shortly after midnight. A corrections officer performed CPR and Deats was transported by Mercy EMS to UMMC before being transferred to ECMC.

All Babies Cherished (ABC) pregnancy assistance center has used plastic baby bottles as a means of collecting donations for many years, but this year ABC cannot find enough baby bottles to make up for the number of bottles loaned to churches, ministries and individuals to collect donations in previous years.  Every year a few bottles don’t come back, but ABC is usually able to purchase more.  This year, ABC’s Executive Director Tammy Arneth tried to purchase more bottles locally and found that they were back ordered, so she tried online and found back ordered baby bottles wherever she looked.  ABC’s Board of Directors is reaching out to the community asking if anyone has plastic baby bottles they are not using that they consider donating them to ABC.
 
The Board of All Babies Cherished is also seeking additional instructors to volunteer to teach in the Center’s Earn While You Learn (EWL) Program.  EWL helps to answer many of the questions a mother or father may have concerning pregnancy and parenting.  ABC provides the moms and/or dads with an opportunity to learn how to be the best parents they can be and helps them to understand the challenges and joys that lie ahead for them and their baby.  Through regular lessons that include DVDs/videos and worksheets, parents learn important and interesting information about pregnancy and taking care of their baby. This program gives them the opportunity to earn "Baby Bucks" that they can use to "purchase" material items and supplies need for the baby.
 
If you have bottles to donate or if you are interested in becoming an instructor volunteer, please call the Center at (585) 344-5660 or visit the Center at 445 Ellicott Street during Center hours, Monday through Wednesday from 10 AM – 1 PM or Thursdays from 6 PM – 8 PM.
