Police in Minot arrested a woman yesterday after they found her baby dead in her apartment.
A McLean County deputy contacted Minot police after he pulled 45-year-old Pauline Stewart over for a traffic stop, and she told him she had left her 3-month-old daughter home alone.
Police checked the apartment on Park Street and found the baby girl dead. They investigated and arrested Stewart for murder.
A press conference is scheduled later this afternoon.
