ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Police in western Greece say they have arrested a woman on allegations she killed her 3-month-old son and then stashed his body in a freezer.

The 31-year-old woman, who was arrested Wednesday morning, is accused of having beaten the infant twice in the head last Saturday and throwing him into a crib with no mattress, leading to serious injuries. The baby died the following morning, police said in a statement.

The woman then allegedly placed her son's body in the freezer in the house where she lived with her three children. The other two children — 16-month-old twins — were taken to a hospital for health checks and have been placed in the care of a children's charity.
