LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A Texas woman faces a criminal charge after police say she purposely disconnected the feeding tube providing nourishment to her hospitalized 1-year-old son.

Twenty-seven-year-old Tonya Robinson of Wake Village, Texas, is being held without bond at the Pulaski County jail. Little Rock police say officials at Arkansas Children's Hospital became suspicious of Robinson after her son Dakota gained weight in their care, but suddenly began to lose weight again.

Police say Robinson disconnected her son's feeding tube from his abdomen and hid his formula inside his diaper.

Robinson faces a count of endangering the welfare of a minor. It was not immediately clear if she had a lawyer.
