Rotorua woman (29) kills 1 yr old baby boy
Rotorua police have made an arrest following the death of a one-year-old baby boy.
The boy died on Friday morning at an Edmund Road property. Police were called after his caregivers found him dead in the lounge.
Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Loper says a 29-year-old woman who lives at the address has been charged with assaulting a child. He says results from a post mortem examination are at this time inconclusive but police are waiting on further forensic results to help establish why the boy died.
Mark Loper says police have not previously been called to the address for family violence matters.
The woman will reappear in court on Wednesday.
