Nampa Woman Allegedly Tried to Drown Baby in Ditch
NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — A woman who allegedly tried to drown her infant child in an irrigation ditch in Nampa is set to appear in court. Twenty-two-year-old Regina Dilworth has been charged with both a misdemeanor and a felony count of injury to a child. She is scheduled to appear in court Monday. Investigators say a passerby had reported seeing Dilworth holding the infant down in the water on Saturday morning. The woman then jumped into the water and rescued the baby.
Officers say when they arrived on scene, Dilworth had been speaking incoherently and appeared to be under the influence of an illegal substance. A 4-year-old child was also present during the incident. Both children have been taken into protective custody. Dilworth was booked into the Canyon County Jail.
