LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas woman arrested over the weekend
after a four-hour standoff at a motel allegedly had threatened to
kill herself and her 1-year-old son.

Police say they saw 35-year-old Kimberly Kardell holding her
toddler along with a knife when they responded to a call shortly
after 7 a.m. on Saturday at the Budget Suites on North Rancho
Drive.

Negotiators talked with her by phone before officers knocked
down the door and apprehended her.

She's been booked on suspicion of several charges including
assault with a deadly weapon, child abuse with a deadly weapon,
resisting a police officer and first-degree kidnapping.

Police said Kardell's son has been placed with Child Protective
Services. An investigation continues.
