Regina Kruchkov, who drowned her 4-year-old son Michael in 2008, was convicted on Tuesday of manslaughter instead of murder due to a plea bargain.

Krichkov was charged in September 2008 with filling a tub with water, then waited for her brother to leave the apartment and proceeded to drown her son to death.

According to the defense attorney she confessed to the crime.

I held him in the tub, I submerged him and he resisted," she said during her testimony in court.

Police learned of the incident in September 2008 when Regina Kruchkov called at about 10:15 PM and whispered: "I killed my child."

The police located the address of the family using the phone number, and a patrol car was sent to the apartment, along with emergency services. Waiting for them was Regina, who repeated that she had killed her son.
