PLATTE CITY, Mo. (AP) — A woman who survived after jumping from a busy Kansas City, Missouri, bridge is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her 8-year-old son.
Platte County authorities say a grand jury indicted 30-year-old Aushena Warren on Monday in the drowning of her son, Audrick.
The boy’s body was found in a full bathtub in June hours after Warren jumped into the Missouri River.
An autopsy concluded the boy drowned. Prosecutors said Warren didn’t call 911 or medical authorities after her son drowned.
