(NEWSER) – A 6-year-old boy was found floating near a marina in Newport, Ore., just a short time after a woman made a 911 call saying she had thrown her son off the Yaquina Bay Bridge, the AP reports.
Police have arrested 34-year-old Jillian McCabe and charged her with aggravated murder, murder, and first-degree manslaughter, with bail set at $750,000, after London McCabe's body was tracked down following a good Samaritan call. "The fire department got there first and recovered the body," a Coast Guard spokesman tells NBC News. "It's absolutely a tragedy." McCabe allegedly told police she heard voices in her head telling her to carry out the act, KGW reports.
