Iowa woman suspected in death of 7-month-old

Posted: Updated:

INDIANOLA, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have arrested an Indianola woman suspected in the Oct. 31 death of a 7-month-old child.

Indianola police say Tori Bittner was arrested Wednesday and charged with child endangerment resulting in death.

Online court records don't list an attorney who could comment for Bittner. She remained in custody Friday, pending $500,000 bail.

Medics who were sent to an Indianola home on Oct. 30 found the child in respiratory distress.

Police say the child was flown to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines but died the next day.

Her relationship to the infant hasn't been made clear. A police spokesman didn't immediately return a message.
