WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Maryland woman working as a nanny has been arrested after police said she force fed an 8-month-old baby girl who died.
 
Prince George's County Police said Wednesday that 66-year-old Oluremi Oyindasola of Glenarden, Maryland, has been charged with second-degree murder, first-degree child abuse resulting in death and other offenses.
 
Police say a home surveillance system recorded Oyindasola napping when the crying child approached in a toddler walker. Police charging documents say Oyindasola unsuccessfully tried feeding the child, then "proceeded to pour a large amount of white liquid directly inside the victim's mouth."
 
Police say the child, who was force-fed a second bottle, had "difficulty breathing and signs of medical distress."
 
Online court records didn't list a lawyer for Oyindasola, who's being held on $1 million bond.
