WARREN, Mich. Authorities say they have arrested a 25-year-old suburban Detroit woman after the death of her newborn daughter.

Multiple media outlets report the woman was arrested Friday at her Warren home on unrelated traffic warrants. Warren police say the roughly three-week-old baby died at a Detroit hospital and had suffered brain bleeding and skull fractures.

Police say they had probable cause to take her into custody since she was the last person with the child and based on the injuries.

According to investigators, the woman called 911 Thursday to report the baby was repeatedly vomiting. Emergency responders revived the baby and took her to the hospital.

Police say an autopsy is planned for Saturday. Authorities will determine whether homicide charges will be filed after autopsy results are reviewed.
