St. Joseph Bathtub Drowning

Authorities in northwest Missouri are looking for a St. Joseph man charged in his infant son's bathtub drowning.

Eight-month-old Kion Winkfield-Maynard died Aug. 2 after being left in the tub unattended. The St. Joseph News-Press reports the baby's 24-year-old father, Shawn Winkfield-Maynard, was charged Monday with first-degree involuntary manslaughter. Buchanan County prosecutor Dwight Scroggins says Winkfield-Maynard was one of two adults in the house when the baby was left alone in the tub for an extended period of time. Winkfield-Maynard had not been arrested as of Tuesday while authorities continued to look for him.
