An Oakville woman is facing charges in connection with the death of her two-year-old son, Halton police said Friday.

In a news release, police said they started an investigation in June 2022 when they were called to a home after the boy was found dead in a bathtub.

Investigators called the death an "apparent drowning."

The 42-year-old woman was charged with one count each of manslaughter and criminal negligence causing death.

She is scheduled to appear in a Milton court on March 23.
