HAGERSTOWN, Md. - A Hagerstown woman faces a manslaughter charge for the bathtub drowning of her 7-month-old son.
The Herald-Mail ( http://bit.ly/QG0B52) reported in Wednesday's edition that 27-year-old Taria King allegedly told police she left Ronald Oliver Jr. and his toddler brother unattended in the tub March 7 while she slept.
She told police she was awakened by the older child and found Ronald face-down in the water.
Investigators say they found about four inches of water in the tub.
Police also found about a half-dozen medications prescribed to King. She told them she had taken a pill before falling asleep.
King has no home telephone listing and couldn't be reached by The Associated Press for comment. A public defender who represented her on a 2005 cocaine charge declined to comment on the case.
