A North Port woman remains behind bars after allegedly telling friends she tried to drown her daughter during a fight.

25-year old Claudia Gonzalez-Garcia allegedly admitted to the crime in July, just a few days before she left the girl with her ex-husband in North Port and moved to Texas.

Last week, police got word that Gonzalez-Garcia was considering moving back to the area.

She admitted to police that she held the girl underwater while giving her a bath, but claimed she blacked out due to stress.
