ANITA, Iowa (AP) -- A western Iowa woman is accused of killing an 11-week-old baby at her daycare by shaking her.

Cass County court records say 36-year-old Alison Dorsey, of Anita, was arrested Thursday and charged with first-degree murder and child endangerment resulting in death.

She remained in Cass County Jail on Friday. Her attorney didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.

Authorities have said the child died Oct. 8 at an Omaha, Nebraska, hospital from internal brain bleeding -- a condition commonly described as shaken baby syndrome.
