At first, Mrs Lewis had claimed that Adrianna had been cleaning bugs out of the pool when she had slipped and fallen in, drowning, until her son and Adrianna's younger brother, AJ had proved otherwise.

Mrs Lewis had reportedly called emergency services appealing for help, and revealing that AJ, 6, had tried to save Adrianna before screaming for help.

Fortunately, while Mrs Lewis had been busy with the doctors battling to save her daughter's life, AJ who had been under the care of his grandparents, had begun to tell the sinister tale behind Adrianna's dilemma.

AJ told his grandparents how his mother had helped Adrianna in the pool, using her hand to cover her daughter's face, pushing her underneath the water.

The grandparents had immediately passed on AJ's account to the local Sheriff' department, who had later taken AJ to be interviewed while Adrianna had still been alive but in critical condition at the hospital.

The reports reveal that AJ had been interviewed on two occasions that day, first by the investigators before child experts, and both accounts had largely remained the same:

'Adrianna had been ‘dunked’ by his mother as a punishment for being naughty'.

'She’d sprayed window cleaner in the living room over the TV and this had made ‘momma mad’.

During the interview, AJ, demonstrates his mother's actions by putting his hand to his forehead to explain how Mrs Lewis had held Adrianna down in the pool.

AJ reportedly told the police:

"Mama dunked my sister. She done some stuff that she ain't suppose so my mama got mad, so she throwed her in the pool."

Adrianna had died in hospital in nearby Panama City, that same afternoon.

Mrs Lewis had been interviewed three times by the Sheriff's Department for the next two days, during which time she had repeatedly denied the claims, going on to take a polygraph test which she later passed.

Further investigations into the day the crime had taken place, corroborated with AJ'S recollection of the days events, proved that the little boy had a clear memory.

One month later, Mrs Lewis had been charged with murder, as her co-worker's reportedly reveal that she had talked about 'killing' her daughter who had ADHD, after Adrianna had vandalised her car by writing 'loser' with permanent marker on the interior.

Mrs Lewis may be facing life sentence for the premeditated murder of her daughter, Adrianna.
