CARTHAGE, Mo. (AP) -

A St. Joseph man wanted on an involuntary manslaughter charge involving the accidental drowning of his 8-month-old son has been taken into custody in southwest Missouri.

The Carthage Press reports 24-year-old Shawn Winkfield-Maynard was arrested late Wednesday at a home in Carthage. He is accused of leaving his infant son, Kion Winkfield-Maynard, in a bathtub unattended Aug. 2, resulting in the baby's death.

Winkfield-Maynard was charged Aug. 12 in Buchanan County with first-degree involuntary manslaughter. Buchanan County prosecutor Dwight Scroggins says he was 1 of 2 adults in the house when the baby was left alone in the tub for an extended period.

He was being held Thursday in Jasper County jail awaiting extradition to Buchanan County. It was not immediately clear whether Winkfield-Maynard had obtained an attorney.
