SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder after the body of her 8-month-old son was found in a storage shed.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s officials said 31-year-old Maria Torres was arrested on Saturday, two days after the infant’s remains were discovered Thursday.

Detectives said Torres was the mother of the child, who likely died a year ago.

They alleged that she obtained money from a church and from others who believed the funds would be used for the child’s burial fees.

The cause of boy’s death was not released.

Torres was being held without bail.
