Gilbert police were called to a Target store Wednesday morning after a woman was seen screaming "I will kill you!" several times to her crying 3-month-old baby. An officer found them in the parking lot of the store at 1515 E. Warner Road, and the mother, 43-year-old Marnie L. Korhel, admitted to making the threats, then handed the baby to officers and said "Give this baby to CPS ... I can't do this!"

The baby was taken into protective custody and CPS came to take custody. A check by the Gilbert Fire Department found no obvious signs of injury.

Gilbert police said charges for domestic violence threats would be sought.
