KENNETT, MO -- An Arkansas mother has been arrested after being accused of plotting to take her own newborn baby from a Missouri hospital.

Police say 28-year-old Amber Trammell conspired with her stepmother, Laura Stone, and another woman, Melissa Howard, to take her baby from the hospital less than two hours after it was born.

According to police, Stone and Howard held emergency doors open to prevent a security device attached to the newborn's ankle from activating an automatic lock. Officers contacted Stone on a cell phone a short time later. Police arrested her after she returned the baby at around 7:30 Wednesday morning.

All three women are charged with endangering the welfare of a minor. Police are still trying to figure out a motive.
