A Stafford man has been indicted and arrested after the drowning death of his three-year-old son.

On September 16, 2021 at 1:19 p.m., deputies and detectives of the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office responded to a home on Fleetwood Farm Road for the report of a drowning. The investigation revealed a three-year-old child had drowned in an above ground pool in his backyard while under the care of his father, Daniel Neely.

Evidence was presented to a grand jury and indictments for felony homicide and abuse and neglect of a child were issued. Neely was arrested yesterday and held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail on a $10,000 bond.
