Murder charges dismissed in one-year-old Flint boy's bathtub drowning

A judge has dismissed second-degree murder charges against a Flint couple blamed for the death of their 1-year-old son who drowned in a bathtub.

Judge Nathaniel Perry III says there's enough evidence for child-abuse charges but not murder in the death of Aden Wise. He was found face-down in the tub in May.

Prosecutors allege the boy was left unattended while Jeremy Wise and Callie Csercsa were fighting. Defense attorneys say that the parents are extremely remorseful. They call it a terrible accident.

It's unknown whether Genesee County prosecutor David Leyton will appeal. Wise and Csercsa are free on bond.
