Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Chilling details have been released into the drowning of a local toddler. Police said a Las Vegas woman told them she was hearing voices and that's why she drowned her son.

30-year-old Christine Allen is accused of drowning her three-year-old son in a bathtub on Saturday night.

The boy's father spoke out to Action News on Monday, "I lost my only baby, that's my only baby, that's all I had and he's gone by a selfish evil person."

Bry Allen continues to mourn his three-year-old son Noah. Police charged his ex-wife, Christine Allen with murder, after drowning him in the bathtub.

Bry can't forget the last words he heard from his son a week ago, "I remember him saying vividly, 'I don't want to go to mommy.'"

He broke down after reading the arrest report, filled with shocking revelations about what happened Saturday night inside the second story unit near Vegas Drive and Buffalo. Police said Christine called 911 but refused their pleas to remove Noah from the tub. She was depressed and said, "It was like a demon inside me took over."

Allen told police, "She heard voices in her head," telling her to drown Noah.

Bry believes she's lying, "She wanted to kill me, my son is dead because she couldn't get to me."

Last August, Christine Allen called 911 from inside a Henderson home. She told police her estranged husband came home, pointed a gun at her and threatened to kill her. But evidence proved otherwise, and she admitted she lied.

In fact, Bry said she lives in a fantasy world, fueled by what he said is an obsession with Kim Kardashian, "Her role model was Kim Kardashian. Do you think Kim would do that to her child?"

Now he wants to honor the memory of his son Noah, the light of his life, "I did everything in my power to make sure he had everything he needed and was able to do everything he wanted to do. My son was the greatest son living but he's gone."

Regarding the call to 911 about her husband threatening her last year, the district attorney's office said Christine Allen is due in court on Tuesday. She will face sentencing on making a false report.
