NY woman charged with murder for drowning her 10-day-old baby

A 25-year-old woman in upstate NY has been charged with second-degree murder for the bathtub drowning of her 10-day-old son, police say. Police didn't identify the adult who found the child and called 911, but they said "that person has been fully cooperative with the investigation". Jeremiah was immediately transported to Rochester General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Police responded to the report of an unresponsive infant on Locust Street on November 13 around 2:30 in the afternoon.

Upon being interviewed by investigators from the Rochester Police Department's Special Victim Investigations, she admitted to intentionally drowning Jeremiah in the bathtub with the objective of ending his life.

According to the felony complaint, Mitchell filled the tub with 8 to 10 inches of bath water and left him submerged for 1 to 2 hours. While being interviewed by investigators, she reportedly "admitted to intentionally drowning her son with the objective of ending his life".

Mitchell is expected to return to court Friday for a preliminary hearing as additional charges are considered for her case.

Mitchell is being held in Monroe County Jail without bail.

Mitchell attended her arraignment hearing Tuesday morning in Rochester City Court, where she pleaded not guilty to the second-degree murder charge. Mitchell allegedly beat her 7-year-old child with a hammer.

Police say Mitchell also has a seven-year-old child, who's now in the care of a relative.
