CHARLESTON, Maine – State Police say a 23-month-old boy drowned earlier this month in Charleston after wandering away from his bed during the night and climbing out a window.

A search of the property found the toddler face down in a brook, and the State Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the death a drowning.

The death took place on July 8.

The parents are Michael and Carolyn Nee and they were staying on relative’s property while preparing to move into a new home in Milo.
