A baby sitter from Queens was convicted Tuesday in the death of an 11-month-old boy who drowned in a bucket of water.

The jury found Krystal Khan guilty for the June 15, 2009 death of James Farrior.

Khan told police that she had dozed-off after taking Dayquil and Nyquil, even though she knew it caused drowsiness.

After Khan fell asleep, James tumbled headfirst into a mop bucket containing about 6 inches of water.

The 30-year-old Khan was convicted of reckless assault of a child by a day care provider and endangering the welfare of a child.

Khan, who has two children of her own, now faces up to four years in prison. Her attorney had said she was "extremely remorseful."
