Mom Doused Son with Bleach and Tried to Drown him in Bathtub

Early last week, the mother of a 10-year-old was arrested after allegedly abusing and injuring her child, in addition to trying to drown him in the bathtub.

According to reports, between April 15 and April 21, the woman took out her aggression on her son after reportedly becoming upset when he told her he would rather live with his father. In response, she allegedly grabbed a bottle of bleach and doused her son with the liquid.

The boy went to the bathroom and got in the tub to wash off, and his mother reportedly entered and held him under the water in an alleged attempt to drown him. It was reported that the youngster pretended to be dead so she would stop. When she realized he was faking, the woman allegedly locked her son in a closet.

On April 21, the youngster called his dad and asked if he would come and get him, but his father said he would have to talk to his mom since it was unscheduled. His son told him what had happened, and the authorities were notified.

The police and a Colbert County Department of Human Resources worker interviewed the child. He said his mom bit him and struck him, and he showed them scrapes and bruises he alleged came from the abuse.

It was reported that the police asked the boy’s mother to come in and talk to them about the accusations, and she reportedly agreed. When she did not show up a BOLO for her car was issued.

The following day, the woman was found and taken into custody on suspicion of aggravated child abuse. She was later released after posting a $50,000 bond. According to reports, she has pleaded not guilty.
