For The Record

September 16, 2009

Drowned boy: Articles in the California section Sept. 12 and 13, 2006, and May 6, 2007, about a Fullerton man accused of drowning his son in a bathtub said Richard Omondi was 4 years old when he died. Prosecutors now say the boy was 6. The error was only recently brought to editors' attention after the father, Gideon Walter Omondi, was convicted of the crime.

Drowned boy: A correction Wednesday, citing information that prosecutors recently provided to The Times, said that reports in 2006 and 2007 inaccurately gave drowning victim Richard Omondi's age as 4. Based on that information, the correction and an article last week reporting his father's murder conviction said that the boy was 6. Now prosecutors say he was indeed 4.
