Choctaw Co. DA: Charges in toddler drowning could take time

By  | 

SAWYER, Okla. (KXII) -- District Attorney Mark Matloff says preliminary findings show this was a tragic accident but won't give a final ruling until the OSBI closes its investigation.

The toddler's body was pulled from a neighbor's pond on Friday.

The sheriff said he got out of the house his mother was visiting in the middle of the night.

Matloff says there is no history of child welfare concerns or evidence of abuse.
