ALTOONA - Altoona Police say a woman tried to smother an infant child.

Miranda Streightiff is facing attempted criminal homicide charges after police received reports she was holding a pillow over the face of an infant.

Police say both children in the house were ok when they arrived. Streightiff was taken to the Blair County Prison.
