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.

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.
