Criminal charges stayed against mother after boy drowned in Alberta lake

EDMONTON — Charges have been stayed against an Edmonton woman whose young son drowned in a lake southwest of the city.

Carmen Gaye Stewart was charged in 2014 with criminal negligence causing death and failing to provide the necessaries of life.

Her three-year-old son drowned in Mink Lake near Stony Plain in June 2013.

Court records show the failing-to-provide charge was stayed during a trial in Edmonton earlier this week.

The criminal negligence charge was stayed in October.
