Boyfriend arrested in child’s violent death
The police arrested a 26 year old man in Papendrecht on Thursday in connection with the death of a baby girl early this month. The suspect is the boyfriend of the baby's mother, but not the girl's father. Emergency services responded to a house in Papendrecht on October 5th after a report of a sick baby. The girl was rushed to the hospital, where she died in the early hours of October 6th. The police launched an investigation because the doctors had doubts about the cause of the baby's death. Further investigation into the cause of the baby girl's death has led to the conclusion that she was murdered. The investigation is still ongoing. The baby's mother was arrested on Wednesday. She will be arraigned on Friday.
