5-year-old drowns brother in bathtub

KANSAS CITY, MO (KLTV) - A 5-year-old girl in Kansas City told social workers she drowned her 18-month-old brother in the bathtub to get him to stop crying.

The toddler was killed last Friday while a teenager was watching several children.

There were no adults in the house at the time of the incident, and the baby sitter had reportedly fallen asleep.

Police say the 5-year-old got upset when the toddler wouldn't stop crying so she took him into the bathroom and drowned him.

The girl has not been arrested.
