MUNCIE, Ind. (WISH) - Police say a woman believed to have attempted abducting an infant was arrested on Friday.
Investigators believe Judith Ann Walker, 34, tried to take a 3-week-old baby Friday morning during a visit to an Affordable Pest Control customer's home.
Walker is a part-owner of the company.
Police say while at the home, Walker wrapped a cord around the homeowner's neck and demanded the infant.
The mother fought off Walker and ran to a neighbor's home. Walker fled the scene but was arrested by police in Anderson Friday evening.
Officers received a tip from Walker's ex-husband, who said he was going to meet Walker Friday evening at an Anderson park. Police arrived and arrested them both.
Police say Walker's ex-husband was wanted on child molestation charges.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Walker has been preliminarily charged with attempted murder, burglary, criminal confinement with a deadly weapon, battery with a deadly weapon, strangulation, and attempted criminal confinement.
The office of Attorney General Greg Zoeller said Wednesday it was appealing the decision. The office says the arbitration panel of three retired federal judges exceeded its authority under law and the process they used hurt Indiana's case.
One person was critically injured, two others seriously hurt in a head on crash in Greenfield late Wednesday.
Employees at some Indianapolis fast food restaurants will take part in a 100-city strike Thursday morning.
