GILBERT, Ariz. -- A woman could face domestic violence charges after she allegedly screamed "I will kill you!" at her crying baby in a Gilbert Target store.

According to the Gilbert Police Department, witnesses at the store near Warner Road and Val Vista Drive called police Wednesday morning after hearing Marnie L. Korhel, 43, yelling the threat several times.

Police officers located Korhel and her 3-month-old baby in the parking lot.

Korhel allegedly admitted making the threats then handed the infant to the officers and said, "Give this baby to CPS… I can't do this!"

Child Protective Services responded to the scene and took custody of the baby. The Gilbert Fire Department checked the infant and did not find any obvious signs of injury.

Police are recommending that Korhel be charged with domestic violence threats.
