Mother charged after Pr. William girl found in bathtub dies
A Dale City woman has been charged with felony child neglect in the death of her 6-year-old daughter after the girl was found unresponsive Friday in bathtub at her home, Prince William County police said.
Andrea Monique Beale, 31, called emergency crews to her home in the 5000 block of Linfield Street shortly before 11:30 a.m. saying she had briefly left Kaylan Beale unattended, said police spokeswoman Officer Erika Hernandez. Kaylan died Monday in an area hospital and Andrea Beale was arrested the next day, police said.
Four other children of Beale's have been removed from the house and are in the care of a grandparent due to the living conditions and lack of supervision police discovered at the Beale home, said Hernandez.
Beale faces felony child endangerment charges in connection with the children who police said are a 3-year-old girl and three boys, ages 10, 8 and 20-months.
Detectives from the Crimes Against Children Unit continue to investigate the case.
Beale is free on $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
