    Wow, yet another mother killing their own child. Sick sick sick sick people! If she didn't want him anymore or couldn't deal with him she should have taken him to a fire station to drop him off or just put him up for adoption. The poor kid now has no chance at any type of life on this earth thanks to his own mother.

    Well, judging from her mugshot she looks like an angry person.

    How scary it must have been for little Markis to look into those blank eyes as she was drowing him.

    RIP Markis.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    I think most safe-haven laws have a cutoff age of like 1 month. I remember seeing on the news a couple of years ago Nebraska accidentally didn't include a cutoff age, and people were driving in from all over the country to drop off their older kids, a few were 16-17 years old.
    So my question is, what is the average age of a child who is murdered by their caregiver? Maybe they should raise the cutoff age accordigly.

    Ashley Cameron was sentenced Friday to 50 years in prison in connection with the drowning death of her son.

    District Judge Jeffrey Neary in May found Cameron, 25, of Onawa, guilty of involuntary manslaughter and child endangerment causing the death of a child for the Feb. 11, 2012, death of her 15-month-old son, Markis Dahms.

    Cameron testified during her four-day trial in Monona County District Court that she had left him in the bathtub to get him some shampoo and clean clothes and that when she returned, he was lying face down in the water.


    Markis died later that evening at an Onawa hospital.

    At trial, Cameron did not challenge the child endangerment charge, admitting that she had left Markis unattended in the bathtub.

    50 years seems really harsh if she didn't mean to do it!
