MIRAMAR, Fla. (AP) — A South Florida woman is being jailed without bail, accused of trying to kill her 3-month old son.

Miramar police say 33-year-old Inakesha Armour told police she's suffering from postpartum depression and "has thought about doing harm to the victim on a daily basis." The Department of Children and Families will ask a judge on Thursday to shelter the infant for his protection.

On Tuesday, a nurse passing motorist called 911 when she saw the infant on the grass and the mother nearby. She began CPR on the child.

Armour's family told the Miami Herald ( ) they knew the new mom had received treatment since the baby's birth. In an arrest report, Armour said she had given the boy adult cough syrup and tried to smother him with a pillow.
