Mother accused of trying to suffocate baby in ICU

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A mother is accused of trying to suffocate her baby while the infant was in the intensive care unit of a Milwaukee pediatric hospital.

Milwaukee County sheriff's officials say the 24-year-old woman tried holding the infant's nose closed and also unplugged the baby's monitoring sensor. Authorities say it was all caught on the ICU's video monitor at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

WTMJ-TV reports the woman is in the Milwaukee County Jail.
