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.
