Police: Stepmother put nail polish remover in baby's bottle

Carol Stream Police Department

An Illinois woman is behind bars and facing a $250,000 bond after police say she tried to poison a 1-year-old baby with nail polish remover. 

Andrea Vazquez-Hernandez, 36, and the child's stepmother, is charged with one count of aggravated battery and one count of domestic battery.

Investigators spoke with the victim's father, who reportedly said that he had attempted to give his daughter milk in a bottle and that she immediately spit it out. The father reportedly took the baby to a hospital, where her vitals came back normal. 

Investigators say that the baby didn't actually ingest the nail polish remover. 

Vazquez-Hernandez’s next court date is scheduled for June 27.
