A woman was arrested in Boise early Saturday morning on a charge of first-degree murder and nine charges of injury to children, eight of which were felonies, following the death of a 20-month-old child earlier this month.
Amanda Dunlap, 22, was booked at 12:58 a.m. Saturday. The 10 warrants were issued from the Twin Falls Police Department, and the Boise Police Department assisted with the arrest, Boise Police Department spokeswoman Haley Williams told the Idaho Statesman.
Twin Falls police could not confirm whether the child was Dunlap’s.
In a statement posted on its Facebook page, the Twin Falls police said that on Oct. 8, a 20-month-old child in distress was life-flighted from St. Luke’s Magic Valley to Boise. The child died six days later.
