ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — A St. Cloud woman is suspected of causing the death of her three-month-old baby and is being held in the Stearns County Jail.

Police said they were called to a home Sunday to check on the welfare of the 26-year-old mother and her infant. Authorities did not say who called them to ask for the welfare check.

Responding officers found the child had died and arrested the mother on suspicion of second-degree murder, the Star Tribune reported.

No cause of death was provided and the body was taken to the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office.
