Why? Repeatedly dunking his 11-month-old son in a pool, until it was almost too late.
Police say he grabbed both sides of the child’s floatie and forced him under water. The mother tried to intervene, but he pushed her away and continued dunking the child, police say. The mother told police she struggled to get the child’s head above water briefly as he gasped for air and his lips turned blue. The child was dunked about six times, police say, until another family member jumped in and pulled Dean away.
