2-year-old girl drowns; man charged:

This story happened reasonably local to me last week.

20-year-old Wesley Paul Canipe was baby sitting 2-year-old Lilly Willover of Shelby, NC while her mother was at work.

Canipe says that Lilly was in the bathtub and he just took his eyes off of her for a moment and she drowned. However police say that Canipe drowned Lilly in the bathtub.

So far there has been no motive mentioned.

More importantly though there a fund has been set up to help cover Lilly’s medical and funeral costs.

Donations can be sent to: Lillyan Ray Willover and Family Fund, c/o Marshall Bradley, Wachovia Bank, 213 South Washington St., Shelby, NC 28150.

Thanks to DPW for the tip.
