Quinton Stanley, charged with murder, says baby's bathtub death was an accident (38)

Update: Earlier this month, we told you about the arrest of Quinton Stanley after a child in his care died; see our previous coverage below. Although the mother of the two year old had only been in a relationship with Stanley for two months or so, she stood by him after the tragedy -- and he maintained that the boy had died after an accidental fall, not abuse. But the Denver District Attorney's Office has now formally charged with first-degree murder. Look below for photos, video and the police report filed in the aftermath of the tragedy.
