Baby Death 

Police responded to a home last night, near Lewiston-Auburn, after getting a report an infant had died and the mother was trying to take her own life.

The Sun Journal reports the baby apparently drowned after the mother fell asleep with the child in the bathtub.

Bill Stokes, with the Attorney General’s Office, says the woman is distraught and in the hospital.

State law requires police investigate the death of any child under the age of three.
