A Moline woman was arrested Wednesday night for allegedly hitting and throwing a 1-year-old child, causing a skull fracture and brain bleeds, court documents state.

Nia Imani Montanez, 22, is being held in the Rock Island County Jail on a $100,000 bond; she would have to pay 10% of that to be released. 

Montanez allegedly struck the child in the head and threw the child sometime between Nov. 1, 2020, and Feb. 24, 2021.

She has been charged with two counts of aggravated battery of a child, a Class X felony that carries a prison sentence of between six and 30 years. 

Montanez is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing at 8:30 a.m. June 22.
