WAYNE COUNTY — A 31-year-old Xenia woman has been found “Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity” in the attempted drowning of her child last March.

Charity Bailey was facing a charge of Class 2 felony aggravated domestic battery.

According to reports from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, Bailey attempted to drown her child in a pond at their home on March 11. Her husband reportedly came home that day and found his wife holding the child under the water. He rescued the child who was rushed to the hospital.

The court ordered a forensic psychiatric evaluation of Bailey. After the results of the evaluation were filed with the court in November, it was found she was fit to stand trial but was experiencing acute psychotic symptoms at the time of the incident and lacked substantial capacity to appreciate the criminality of her conduct.

Then on Tuesday, the Court ruled Bailey meets the legal standard of “Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity”.

She must now submit to an evaluation by the Department of Human Services to determine what treatment she will undergo. A status on that plan is scheduled for Tuesday, March 19.
