BROOKHAVEN, Pa. (AP) -- A suburban Philadelphia woman who police say showed them a photo of her toddler duct-taped to a chair as part of an identity theft complaint is being held without bail.

Police arrested 21-year-old Caira Ferguson on child endangerment and other charges Wednesday.

Ferguson told police earlier this month that her identity had been stolen, and that someone had posted online a photo of her young daughter bound to a chair with duct tape covering her mouth.
Nether Providence Township police say Ferguson admitted taping the girl to a chair about seven months ago. Ferguson denied the allegations to reporters.

Ferguson's mother says she thinks another child was responsible.
After a court hearing Thursday, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the girl will live temporarily with her godparents.
