CA mom suspected of trying to murder daughter

MONTCLAIR, Calif. (AP) - A California mother is expected to make her first court appearance Monday after she allegedly tried to kill her 8-year-old daughter on Halloween.

The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin ( reports that 31-year-old Stephanie Irene Aguilar of Rancho Cucamonga was arrested and booked Thursday for investigation of attempted murder, corporal injury on a child and obstructing a police officer. She is being held on $1 million bail.

Montclair police said Aguilar and her daughter were in a SUV last week when the mother slammed the vehicle into the back of a tractor-trailer on Interstate 10.

Police said witnesses told dispatchers Aguilar punched her injured daughter and slammed the girl's head into the SUV console. Aguilar then allegedly attacked a responding CHP officer.

A motive for the attacks has not been released.
