ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) – A Missouri woman has been charged in the drowning death of her six-month-old son.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports that 27-year-old Sydney Jones, of St. Joseph, is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday on a charge of abuse or neglect leading to the death of the child at her apartment.
She’s jailed on $100,000 bond. No attorney is listed for her in online court records.
A police detective wrote in the probable cause statement that Jones pinned her son down to an inflatable child’s tub inside of a bathtub last week while water was running. A witness stated that the drowning was intentional.
