    CENTERVILLE, Iowa (AP) An Ohio woman has been arrested on Iowa charges that she tried to kill her baby.

    The Centerville Police Department says 23-year-old Kristina Kennedy-Maroney, of Hicksville, Ohio, was arrested on Wednesday. Kennedy-Maroney is in the Appanoose County jail, facing two counts of attempted murder and two counts of child endangerment.

    Police say 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 say Kennedy-Maroney told a Hicksville detective that she held the child's face under water in an apartment bathtub for about three seconds. She says 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.
