Mom's murder trial begins Tuesday in Onawa, IA

ONAWA, Iowa (KTIV) -

The murder trial of an Onawa, Iowa, mom, who's charged with killing her child, begins Tuesday.

Prosecutors say Ashley Cameron drowned her 15-month-old son in her home. They say she held Markis Dahms under a running faucet in the bathtub until he drowned.

Cameron has pled not guilty to the charge. Tuesday morning, Cameron's "bench trial" begins. In a "bench trial", a judge hears the evidence, and renders a verdict, not a jury.
