Father: Ex-Wife Drowned 3-Year-Old Son to Hurt Him

Christine Allen

LAS VEGAS -- A father is preparing to bury his 3-year-old son, while the child's mother is accused of murder in connection with the boy's drowning death.

A Metro Police report outlines her claims of possible mental illness, but the father says he disagrees. Bry Allen says he was in California when he got the call that his ex-wife was in jail accused of murder. The victim: his 3-year-old son, Noah.

"I could remember vividly. He kept saying, 'I don't want to go to mommy. I don't want to go with mommy," Allen said.

Allen says he had joint custody of Noah, and he dropped him off to his ex-wife, Christine Allen, last Tuesday.

"That is the last time I saw my son. That is the last thing he told me," Allen remembered.

Now, Christine Allen is accused of murder. Police say the 30-year-old mother held the toddler under water in the bathtub and drowned him Saturday night at their home.

When firefighters arrived at the home on Clarkdale Drive, Allen was found sitting on the floor in the living room and the child was in the tub and unresponsive. He was transported to Sunrise Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
