The Kingston Western Police have charged a man in connection with the death of his eight-month-old child.
Darren Wittick, a resident of Tivoli Gardens has been charged with manslaughter and child neglect arising from the December 19, 2022 death of his daughter.
Investigators say Mr. Wittick, 24, was giving his daughter a bath when he left her unattended in the bath tub for several minutes.
On his return, he found the infant motionless in the tub.
The child was rushed to the Bustamante Hospital for Children where she was pronounced dead.
Mr. Wittick was charged after an autopsy revealed that the child died as a result of drowning.
He is booked to appear in court to answer the charges.
