The Week That Was in The Caldwells

Former Caldwell man charged with daughter's death among the week's headlines.

The past week began with an autopsy confirming the death of a 20-year-old who grew up in Caldwell was a homicide.

The week ended, however, on a much lighter note with many area residents taking advantage of the opening of Grover Cleveland Park's pond for ice skating.

Here's a look at The Caldwells week in review:
