A South Tulsa mother is accused of leaving her 13-month old in bathtub alone, where the child drowned.
Court records show Makayla Rhotenberry, who also lists "Wheeler" as a last name, is charged with second-degree manslaughter in the drowning of her 13-month-old daughter Avery Rhotenberry on May 22. Records show the girl died on May 24 from the drowning in South Tulsa.
Detectives tell FOX23 News Rhotenberry left the child in the bathtub and went to the kitchen to cook food.
Charges were filed on Tuesday and a warrant was issued. Records show she turned herself in on Thursday at 1:30 p.m. and posted a $25,000 bond and was released at 8:30 p.m. Thursday.
