ONAWA, Iowa — A mother accused of drowning her toddler in a bathtub took the stand Friday and denied that she repeatedly stuck her son's head under the faucet.
Instead, Ashley Cameron testified she left the room to get shampoo and clothes, leaving 15-month-old Markis Dahms alone with his 2½-year-old sister, Abigail. Cameron returned to find Markis lying in the water.
