A man has been charged over the drowning death of a toddler in the NSW town of Armidale.
Police say a two-year-old boy was found submerged in a backyard pool in Fletcher Street, Armidale, in May. The child was rushed to hospital in a critical condition but died two days later.
A 61-year-old man was interviewed by Armidale police on Tuesday and charged with manslaughter.
Police say he was not a relative of the toddler but owned the property where the child was found, and had failed to adequately fence the pool off.
The man was bailed to appear in Armidale Local Court on August 6.
