HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Bond has been officially set for the woman accused of trying to kill her infant daughter.

A judge set Natasha Deann Townsend's bond at $60,000. Townsend is charged with the attempted murder of her 3-month-old child. She remains in the Madison County Metro Jail.

Townsend is accused of using a butcher knife to stab her daughter. Investigators said she had planned to kill the child and then herself.

Officers found the baby with multiple stab wounds Saturday at a home on Neptune Drive in Huntsville, a home neighbors said belongs to a relative of Townsend.

The baby was taken to UAB with critical injuries. An update on her condition has not been released.
