Babysitter who left girl in bathtub to be sentenced

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson mother will learn her sentence today for the death of an infant she was babysitting. This is a story Tucson News Now brought viewers in June 2012.   

Zada Davis, 28, was found guilty last month of negligent homicide for leaving a 10-month-old girl in the bathtub with the water running.

Investigators say she left the infant in the tub while she went to another part of the house, to check on two other children she was watching.  Davis returned to find the tub overflowing and the infant floating face down.  The child was first hospitalized, than later taken off of life support. 

Stay with Tucson News Now for updates on this case. Davis is expected in Superior Court for sentencing at 1:30 p.m. today.
