Davie Ann Lamburth pleaded ‘guilty’ to charges of attempted assault Tuesday as part of a plea deal.
Police say she tried to drown her daughter in a bathtub in June of 2019.
Lamburth told detectives her daughter had ‘fish characteristics’, and that if the infant passed away, she believed her daughter would come back as an animal.
Lamburth also admitted to using meth and heroin prior to the incident.
The child was not seriously injured, and is now in custody of a relative.
KOTI-TV NBC2 reporter Lyle Ahrens moved from Nebraska to Klamath Falls in the late 1970’s. He instantly fell in love with the mountains, the trees and the rivers, and never once regretted the move.Lyle’s job history is quite colorful.
He’s managed a pizza parlor; he’s been a bartender, and a “kiwifruit grader” at an organic orchard in New Zealand. A Klamath Falls radio station hired Lyle in the mid 90’s as a news writer and commercial producer. In 2004, Lyle joined the KOTI/KOBI news operation.Lyle notes with pride that he has a big responsibility presenting the Klamath Basin to a wide and varied audience.
“The on-going water crisis has underscored the fact that the people and the issues in the Klamath Basin are every bit as diverse as the terrain. Winning and keeping the trust of the viewers, as well as the newsmakers, is something I strive for with each story”.
When he’s not busy reporting the news, Lyle enjoys astronomy, playing guitar, fixing old radios and listening to anything by Sheryl Crow.
