Seymour Mother Sentenced to 25 Years After Toddler Drowns in Bathtub

A Seymour mother who left her children unattended in a bathtub will spend 25 years in prison.

34-year-old Bethanie Carriker pleaded guilty Monday morning to two counts of Aggravated Child Neglect.

Her 15-month-old died and her 20-day-old was hospitalized in May. Carriker says she left the children in the tub for 10-12 minutes, and returned to find them “blue and unresponsive.”

Carriker was sentenced to 25 years for each count, but to be served concurrently.
