GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say a foster mother told them she lost control when she shook a baby to death because the child would not stop crying.

Court documents say 20-year-old Sydney Danielle White told police she did not know how long shook the 11-month-old girl. The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1Dwv0LO) reports Tuesday that a judge held White in jail on $100,000 bond after her Friday arrest for suspicion of child abuse resulting in death.

Authorities say social services placed the baby with White and her husband in July. The Department of Human Services removed the couple’s two young children from the home after the infant’s death.

Police say White told them her 2-year-old son saw her shaking the baby and told her to stop. Court records do not list White’s attorney.
