Tulsa, Oklahoma (The Weekly Vice) - Lisa Zillman, a 24-year-old Oklahoma woman was charged with murder Tuesday after she allegedly got doped up on Xanax and whiskey before deciding to take a bath with her baby daughter. The baby was later found floating dead in the bath tub.

According to Tulsa County prosecutors, Zillman was under the influence of Xanax and whiskey Sept. 29th when she reportedly decided to take a bath with her 2-month-old baby.

The child's father became suspicious after 20 minutes had passed without hearing any noise coming from inside the bathroom. Since the door was locked, he was forced to pry open the door using a butter knife.

Inside the bathroom, Zillman was initially found sleeping, but woke up when the father started shouting her name. The child, who's name is Hanna, was found unresponsive inside the bathtub.

A plastic bathing chair was also found in the bathtub.

Paramedics that were called to the residence were unable to revive the child. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Zillman was booked into the Tulsa County Jail on a charge of second-degree murder. Bond has been set for $500,000.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

This should be an interesting case to watch. Quite frankly, I believe prosecutors are taking a bit of a risk going for a murder charge instead of a manslaughter charge - however I wouldn't be surprised if they plea bargain the case down to that. I really do not believe this woman, as stupid as she is, intended to murder her baby.

I'd bet dimes to dollars that she's in a post-natal depression, fueled by drugs and booze. It's really sad when these cases go undiagnosed.
