GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a Goodyear woman is in custody for allegedly trying to drown her baby daughter.

Goodyear police say 28-year-old Phoeteama Janiece Neal is being held on a $1 million bond on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder.

Officers say a possible drowning at a home was reported about 1:35 p.m. Monday.

The 20-month-old girl was taken to a Phoenix hospital, where she remains in extremely critical condition.

Detectives say Neal learned earlier Monday that her daughter was to be relinquished to the baby's father at the end of this month.

It was unclear Tuesday if Neal has a lawyer yet.
