PERRIS (AP) — The Riverside County Sheriff's Department says an infant was found dead in a Perris apartment and a woman is in custody.
A department statement says a person flagged down a police officer, reported a foul odor emanating from a neighboring apartment and requested a welfare check.
Inside the apartment were a 28-year-old woman, a 2-year-old child and the deceased infant.
The woman was held for investigation of child endangerment. The 2-year-old was taken into protective custody.
