Girl, 5, To Be Taken Off Life Support After Her Mother Allegedly Tried To Drown Her

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A father has decided to take his 5-year-old daughter off life support days after the child’s mother allegedly tried to drown her in a bathtub.

CBS2 has been told the child is brain dead and her family will donate her organs.

Lorne Valle, 32, was booked last week for murder in the death of her 1-year-old daughter, Lindsay Taque, and attempted murder in the near drowning of her other daughter, whose name has not been released.

Valle, who faces murder and attempted murder charges, is being held on $1.5 million bail.

Neighbors say she was suicidal in the weeks leading up to Wednesday’s incident.
