Online court records accessed by PEOPLE state Lindsee Leonardo of Knoxville was charged Friday with first-degree murder for her role in the death of her infant son, Aiden Leonardo.
Aiden died after being left in the bathtub after his mom allegedly stepped away to have a cigarette and listen to music on her phone, say authorities.
On Jan. 8 at about 8 p.m., Leonardo called 911 after she found Aiden floating face-up in her home’s bathtub.
She allegedly told investigators she had left the 11-month-old and her 23-month-old child in the bathtub alone in 4 to 6 inches of water while she stepped outside “to smoke a cigarette and have some ‘me time.'”
