CRAWFORD COUNTY, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Police arrested an Arkansas woman who admitted to jamming a wet wipe down her baby’s throat, fatally cutting off the child’s air supply, according to investigators.
Nancy Williams, of Mulberry, faces a charge of first-degree murder after first responders and police found her 2-month-old baby boy unresponsive Thursday.
First responders attempted CPR but found the baby’s airway blocked, according to the arrest affidavit. They were finally able to locate an object deep in the infant’s throat that was barely visible. Emergency personnel managed to remove the object, which was confirmed to be a baby wipe, but were not able to save the infant’s life.
