PITTSBURGH - A 6-year-old Pennsylvania boy whose mother allegedly held him underwater in a bathtub has died, four days after his younger brother drowned.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Officer on Saturday confirmed the death of Daniel Schlemmer.

His mother, 40-year-old Laurel Michelle Schlemmer, had been arrested earlier this week and is being held in the Allegheny County Jail without bond on charges of drowning her 3-year-old son Luke, who died Tuesday.

County detectives say the mother told them she tried to drown both boys in the bathtub at their McCandless home in western Pennsylvania after a third son left for school. She allegedly told investigators she heard "crazy voices" telling her to push the boys underwater.
