Police: Woman Tried To Drown Her Grandson

HOUSTON, Aug. 18 (UPI) — A Houston woman has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly trying to drown her grandson, police say.

Auburne Jeanine Benson, 46, had not yet been arrested Thursday for the incident, alleged to have taken place Aug. 7, KTRK-TV, Houston, reported.

The boy told police his grandmother filled a bathtub with about 6 inches of water and then pushed his head into the water. The boy said he struggled and was able to free himself from the water and plead with Benson to stop the attack, the report said.

At that point, Benson left the bathroom and called her sister crying, admitting what she had done, and her sister came to the house and removed the boy, the TV station reported.
