BOISE (AP) — An Idaho woman has been charged with murder in connection with the death of her infant son.

Paramedics were called to a home in Meridian last week for a 2 month-old boy who was unresponsive. The emergency workers alerted officers with the Meridian Police Department, who arrested 26-year-old Danielle Radue last Monday.

Police spokesperson Stephany Galbreaith said Radue was initially charged with felony injury to a child. The child died of his injuries on Friday, however, prompting prosecutors to charge Radue with first-degree murder.

She has not yet had a chance to enter a plea and her attorney could not be immediately reached for comment.

Radue is being held on $1 million bail. Police did not release the child’s name nor any details about his injuries.
