FLINT, MI (WNEM/AP) -

Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton has charged the parents of a 1-year-old boy with second-degree murder and child abuse related to the infant's drowning death.

On Monday, May 20, Flint police were dispatched to Holly Avenue in Flint in response to a report of a deceased child. When they arrived, police observed the child's father administering CPR on his son who was then taken to Hurley Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

According to reports from the police investigation, the child had been given a bath and was left unattended at some point in a bathtub full of water. The parents then discovered him face down in the water and authorities were called.

Leyton has charged the child's mother, Callie Rose Csercsa, 19, and Jeremy Lewis Wise, 29, with second-degree murder and second-degree child abuse related to the drowning death of their son, Aden Lewis Wise.

The couple are scheduled for arraignment Thursday in 68th District Court, and they didn't have lawyers of record Wednesday.
