ONTARIO, California. – A California mother has been arrested for investigation of murder in the death of her 7-month-old daughter after police say she intentionally hit her boyfriend with a car if he is the baby.
Ontario police Sgt. Jeff Higbee says the 19-year-old Sarah Gomez was arrested after the death early Tuesday morning. She is being held on a $1 million dollar bail.
Higbee says Gomez and her boyfriend quarrel late Monday after they had been drinking at a family gathering.
Higbee says the couple left the meeting with the girl and drove home. Higbee says the friend stepped out of the car with the baby and that is when Gomez hit them.
A relative took the father and daughter to a hospital, where the baby died. The father had minor injuries.
