GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Police arrested a 21-year-old babysitter after the infant's mother says she came home early and found her smothering the child with a pillow.
Authorities say Tiffany Long faces aggravated child abuse charges. She is being held in the Alachua County Jail.
Gainesville police spokesman Mike Schibucla says Long ran from the home but was later located and arrested.
Details about the baby's condition were not immediately available. The name of the child's mother was not released.
Jail records did not list an attorney for Long. She's being held on a $35,000 bond.
