[P]rosecutors say... that Ms. Vaughn put her two boys in the bath on Sunday night and wandered off to another room to play CD's. Her current companion, Gary Young, poked his head in after 15 or 20 minutes and, though he did not see Dahquay, assumed the boy had tucked himself behind the shower curtain and then went out for diapers and some beer.
Twenty minutes later, give or take a few, Ms. Vaughn checked on the boys herself.
The boys were 3 years old and 16 months old. The younger child, Dahquay, drowned.
I SHOULD ADD: The linked article, which is quite long, is an effort to portray the mother in a sympathetic light.
