ALBANY, NY (PIX11) -- Myl's law, a bill created to ensure proper child care when a parent is arrested, failed to pass in Albany.

Legislators say it would overwhelm state agencies.

It was named for 4-year-old Myls Dobson, whose father was arrested and left Myls with girlfriend Kryzie King.

The child was later found dead. He had been beaten and starved. King is charged with murder.

The bill would have required police to notify child welfare services if the arrested parent was the one caring for the child.
