DENVER -- The father of a 7-month-old son who drowned in a bathtub has been charged with child abuse resulting in death, the Denver district attorney said Wednesday.
Thomas Ashley, 46, was bathing his son Isaac, and left him unattended in the tub while he took out the trash and made a phone call, said Denver DA spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough.
Firefighters were called to Ashley's home when but were unable to revive Isaac, she said.
Ashley was released on a $100,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on May 14.
