Belmont man charged with involuntary, criminally negligent homicide and released with appearance tickets


Taz Cain also charged with criminal sale of a controlled substance, released with appearance ticket

Amity-based State Police charged a Belmont man with criminally negligent homicide, a Class E felony, for an incident that was called in on Dec. 4, 2022 at 11:02 a.m. in Belmont. He was charged on Saturday at 12:15 p.m. and released.

Troopers charged Taz Cain, 28, of Belmont with the one count of criminally negligent homicide, one count of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, a narcotic, and a Class B felony and one count of acting in a manner injurious to a child under the age of 17, a misdemeanor.

Troopers did not specify the drug, the age of the child or details of the “criminally negligent homicide.” Troopers said Cain was released with appearance tickets.

Cain has had prior drug arrest.

Last week, troopers charged Cain in Independence with use of drug paraphernalia and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, both misdemeanors. Cain was released with appearance tickets.

Earlier in 2023, Wellsville Village Police arrested Cain on a warrant, presumably for a 2017 arrest for traffic violation.

On January 31, village police said, acting on a bench warrant, police arrested Cain for failure to appear in Court on previous second-degree unauthorized use of a motor vehicle charge and other vehicle and traffic charges. During that arrest, Cain was processed and arraigned before Wellsville Village Justice Brad Thompson and released with a court appearance in February of 2023.
