A 33-year-old San Diego woman has been arrested on suspicion of killing her 7-month-old son, whose body was found on the ground beneath the family's third-story apartment, police said Saturday.

Zewoinesh Badasso was booked into the Las Colinas Detention Center late Friday. Police had gone to the Normal Heights apartment complex after a resident found the infant on the ground, possibly due to a fall, authorities said.

Police and paramedics attempted to revive the child but he was pronounced dead at a local hospital, officials said.
