St. Paul mom charged in daughter’s death found mentally ill

A St. Paul woman accused of drowning her 6-year-old daughter in the bathtub has been committed indefinitely to the Minnesota Security Hospital.

Ramsey County Judge David Higgs determined 25-year old Kayla Marie Jones is mentally ill and dangerous and should stay at the St. Peter hospital indefinitely.

Jones was charged with second-degree murder in the Dec. 23 drowning of her daughter, Azaria Jones.

According to a criminal complaint, Jones told police she put her daughter in the tub to “save her from this world.”
