According to Mailonline: A young mother was jailed today for letting her 12-month-old baby drown in a bath while she went out to drink wine with neighbours and then tried to blame the death on her older son.
Danielle Reeves, 24, left her son Frankie-Joe and his brother Alfie, now aged three, unsupervised in a dangerously overfilled bath for up to 50 minutes. A court heard Reeves had gone to see a neighbour after a row with the father of her two children where she complained about the relationship and drank a tumbler of white wine.
He said that Reeves was guilty of gross and criminal neglect, adding: 'There must be an immediate term of imprisonment.'Guildford Crown Court heard that Reeves argued with her children's father after deciding to move out of the property to pursue a freer and more fun loving lifestyle.
Prosecutor Ms Ruby Selva said they heard Alfie screaming and Reeves shouted out to the older boy to sit down and turn the shower tap on for entertainment.
