BRUSSELS, Wis. (AP) — The mother of a baby who died in Door County has been arrested.

Sheriff’s deputies say emergency responders were called to a home in the town of Brussels Wednesday shortly after 5 p.m. on a report of a pulseless, non-breathing eight-month-old girl.

The baby was taken to the Door County Medical Center where she was pronounced dead. Deputies arrested the child’s 33-year-old mother and took her to the county jail. Door County Distirict Attorney Raymond Pelrine is reviewing the case.
