MILWAUKEE (AP) - Bail is set at $1 million for a Milwaukee man charged with drowning his 3-month-old son after he got angry with the boy’s mother.

Twenty-five-year-old Sean Flowers was charged Tuesday with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of his son, Sean Flowers III.

According to the complaint, Flowers was attending a family party Saturday when he became upset with his girlfriend, took the baby and left the apartment.

The complaint says family members pleaded with Flowers to hand over the baby, but he walked into a pond with the infant. When police arrived, the group was yelling “he’s drowning the baby.”

An officer found the baby in the water, but attempts to revive him failed. Police brought Flowers back to shore and had to use a stun gun to handcuff him.

A message left for his attorney for comment was not immediately returned.
