Staff from the Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital alerted police after they found bruises on a 1-year-old baby girl’s chest, who was brought there by a couple last Thursday at 11:30am. The girl was pronounced dead on arrival.
Police arrested the 23-year-old woman and her 25-year-old boyfriend on the same day on suspicion of causing the death of the girl.
A post-mortem revealed that the girl had died from severe internal bleeding at the abdomen, believed to be caused by a blunt object.
The woman, from Bukit Goh, has been unemployed after she separated from her husband last year while the boyfriend is an odd job worker from Chenderawasih. Both are being remanded for one week.
