Mother not guilty in tub accident

July 29, 2010

A Madison County mother will not face jail time for leaving her baby in a bathtub slingback chair, leading to an accident that caused the child brain damage. A jury ruled Beverlie Lamborne of Pendleton didn't act wisely, but also didn't act criminally when she left her baby alone in a chair that flipped over in the tub in January 2009. The accident left the then-6-week-old girl with brain damage and blindness.
