A KCK man has been sentenced to nine years in prison for trying to drown his 3-year-old son in a bathtub.

Lamonte Brown, 24, pleaded no contest in April to aggravated kidnapping and criminal threat. A charge of attempted murder was dropped.

The Kansas City Star reports Brown's lawyer said at Friday's sentencing her client did not remember the January 2012 incident. The attorney said Brown had been unaware that the marijuana he had smoked was laced with the hallucinogenic drug PCP.

Brown's girlfriend has testified she called police the day of the incident when she heard screams and splashing from a bathroom, where Brown had the 3-year-old boy and another child.

Police broke down the bathroom door and pulled the 3-year-old to safety.
