COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Colorado Springs police say a woman sought for questioning in a murder case tossed her baby at police and ran.

Police say they saw a bloody butcher knife while investigating a dispute and when they tried to question Ellyzabeth Rainey, she held up her two-month-old baby and told police to take the baby because she was going to run.

An officer caught the child.

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, Rainey was arrested Wednesday afternoon in the killing of her mother-in-law, Deborah Rainey.

Police say Ellyzabeth Rainey told officers she threw boiling water on her mother-in-law to distract her, and then threw weights at her head. She stabbed her multiple times and then poured bleach into her nose and mouth, according to court papers.
