A man whose infant son died after being left unsupervised in a bathtub has been indicted on a charge of manslaughter.

An Androscoggin County grand jury handed up indictments Tuesday charging Sean St. Armand, 27, of 125 Pierce St., Lewiston, with manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child.

St. Armand placed the 11-month-old baby in a partially filled bathtub with his 23-month-old sister and then left the room on Oct. 20, Maine State Police said at the time.

When he checked on the baby later, the child was unresponsive, police said.

The child, Sean St. Armand Jr., was pronounced dead on arrival at Central Maine Medical Center.

The boy’s mother, Jennifer Everett, 28, was taking a nap in the apartment at the time.


The manslaughter indictment charges the father with “recklessly or with criminal negligence” causing the death of the child.

The charge of endangering the welfare of a child says he recklessly endangered the health, safety or welfare of his daughter.
