(Scroll down for video) A young woman was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing her boyfriend’s baby because he took away her son’s toy, police in Washington said.

Seattle police said that they have arrested 20-year-old Alicia Joni Goemaat, after being accused of kicking 17-month-old Drue Lehto.

She kicked him in the stomach until he died because he took away her 2-year-old son’s toy. Only a week before the victim died, he was treated at a hospital for unusual bruises and scratches.

According to the police investigation, Goemaat struggles with drug addiction and often yelled at the victim. The child’s father, Derek Lehto, told investigators that the suspect became extremely agitated when the victim cried.

On Sunday, the victim fought with Goemaat’s 2-year-old son over a toy. Goemaat admitted to the police that she became angry with the child and kicked the victim in the stomach.

Goemaat was booked into jail and her bail was set at $1 million. Goemaat attempted to kill herself on Wednesday.
