An 18-year-old Plymouth woman was arrested early Thursday morning after an investigation into a battery incident.

Plymouth emergency personnel were called to a home in the 200 block of East Lake Street in Plymouth on a report that a one-month-old infant was having difficulty breathing. The infant was later transported to Memorial Hospital in South Bend.

Plymouth police conducted an investigation and found that the infant’s mother, Diana Turner, caused the baby’s serious injuries two hours prior to the medical call.

Turner was questioned by Plymouth detectives and later transported to the Marshall County Jail on preliminary charges of Battery and Neglect of a Dependent, both Class B felonies. She is being held in the Marshall County Jail without bond at this time.
