Children To Remain in Foster Care Following Drowning Death

Friday, we are learning more about the circumstances inside a central Lubbock home when 13-month-old Kimyana Licon died.

Children's Protective Services tell us that Kimyana's aunt was watching Kimyana and her own two young children while Kimyana's mother was at the dentist. She put the kids in the bathtub and reportedly asked her sleeping husband to watch them while she picked Kimyana's mother up at the dentist. When the two women returned, Kimyana was face down in the tub.

As NewsChannel 11 told you Thursday, the aunt's two children and Kimyana's sibling are all in CPS custody now pending an investigation.
