A Texas baby boy was brutally murdered by his own mother.

Dallas Police said that a woman is facing a capital murder charge in the drowning of her 1-year-old son in a bathtub.
Chloe Menager was jailed last week on $1 million bond. Online jail records did not list a lawyer for the woman who is 25-years-old.

The child was identified as Elijahu Perez.
A police report said that Menager killed the boy by allegedly holding Elijahu underwater in a bathtub.

Dallas Police stopped a vehicle around 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, and the driver said he had got a call that his son had died. The officers followed the man to a residence where the body was found. The mother was also at the scene.

The mother was seen by a neighbor throwing away baby toys earlier in the day.

The father's name has not been released.
If convicted of the crime she faces the death penalty.
