Woman pleads guilty to negligent homicide in baby’s drowning


EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – A Florence woman has pleaded guilty to negligent homicide in the drowning of her 8-month-old child.

The Register-Guard reports 30-year-old Angela Louise Davis pleaded guilty Tuesday in Lane County Circuit Court in the Feb. 22 death of Brentley Pinnock.

She acknowledged in court that she had, without legal justification, caused her baby’s death by leaving him unattended in a bathtub as it filled with water.

Police say Davis reported that she fell asleep on her couch, awoke after 10 minutes and returned to the bathroom, where she found her son submerged.

Florence police arrested Davis after a Lane County grand jury returned an indictment in May, charging her with causing the child’s death.

Davis is scheduled for sentencing in December.
