AZ Woman is Arrested in Baby Daughter’s Death

PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a Prescott Valley woman has been arrested in connection with the death of her 3-month-old daughter.

Prescott Valley police say 29-year-old Angela Clark is being held at the Yavapai County Detention Facility on suspicion of second-degree murder and child abuse.

It was unclear Friday if she has a lawyer yet for her case.

Police say officers responded to a call on Sept. 17 about an infant who was found unresponsive in a bathtub.

The investigation determined the baby was left unattended for more than 25 minutes in the tub filled with water.

The infant was airlifted to a Phoenix hospital and placed on life support.

Police say the baby died Thursday and Clark was taken into custody.
