Albany --  No charges will be filed against the mother of an Albany one-year old who died after falling into a bucket of bleach Saturday.  

Coroner Emma Quimbley announced preliminary autopsy results show Asia Brown drowned. She also said the bleach in the bucket was so highly concentrated that it damaged the toddler's organs.

We now know that Brown's 13-year-old brother was the one mopping the floor and left the five gallon bucket sitting on a mat outside the kitchen along with the mop. Brown's five-year-old sister found her, pulled her out of the bucket, and attempted CPR.

Assistant District Attorney Chris Cohilas said there was no criminal intent and it's just a tragic accident.

"The overwhelming evidence demonstrates this was a horrible accident, there was no criminal intent," said Cohilas. "This mother has suffered a loss that no parent would ever want to suffer and this is just an accident that can occur with children who are curious and left unattended just a for a few moments."  

Funeral services were held this afternoon for Asia Brown in Northwest Georgia.
