Rochester woman accused of intentionally drowning her 10-day old son”

According to the Rochester Police Department, the mother of a 10-day-old baby has been arrested for the infant's death.

Markiya Mitchell, 25, admitted to investigators that she intentionally drowned her son in the bathtub with the goal of ending his life. The complaint says Mitchell filled the tub with eight to 10 inches of bath water and left him submerged.

"The defendant by these actions intentionally caused the death of her infant son", the complaint read.

Rochester police say officers responded Monday afternoon to a report of an unresponsive child at a home. He was taken to Rochester General Hospital where officers say he later died. The name of the public defender assigned to her case wasn't available. The 25-year-old is also the mother of another child.

Mitchell is scheduled to be arraigned this morning on a charge of second degree murder. The 7-year-old, however, is now in the care of another family member. She will appear in court Friday at 10:30 a.m. for a preliminary hearing.
