A California teen landed herself behind bars after an altercation with her child’s father turned deadly.
19 year Sarah Gomez allegedly ran over and killed her 7-month-old baby during the feud with the father of her child, according to police.
Sarah was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of murder in connection with the fatal incident outside an Ontario home, news station KTLA reported.
She also faces charges of attempted murder. Gomez and the 21-year-old father were reportedly intoxicated after attending a Memorial Day party when they got into an argument on the ride home. “Something happened on the way home or after they left the event,” Ontario police Sgt. Jeff Higbee told the Los Angeles Times.
Upon returning home, Gomez allegedly mowed down her boyfriend, who had just grabbed their baby girl from inside the vehicle.
Both the dad and baby were brought to the hospital, where the child later died. The father remains hospitalized after suffering scrapes and abrasions.
Gomez was arrested and booked at the San Bernardino County West Valley Detention Center. She is being held on $1 million bail.
