Mother accused of trying to kill baby

CENTERVILLE, Iowa – A northwest Ohio woman has been arrested in Iowa, accused of trying to kill her baby.

The Centerville (Iowa) Police Department said 23-year-old Kristina Kennedy-Maroney, of Hicksville, was arrested on Wednesday.

Kennedy-Maroney was in the Appanoose County jail, facing two counts of attempted murder and two counts of child endangerment.

Police said Kennedy-Maroney tried to kill her 5- to 6-month-old child twice in September 2009 when she was living in Centerville. The Centerville police said Kennedy-Maroney told a Hicksville detective that she held the child’s face under water in an apartment bathtub for about three seconds; and that on a separate occasion she held a pillow over the child’s face for about 10 seconds.

Court records don’t list the name of her attorney.
