Woman, 27, charged with murder after child dies in Winnipeg hospital

Winnipeg police have charged a 27-year-old woman with second-degree murder in the death of a 21-month-old child.

WINNIPEG — Winnipeg police have charged a 27-year-old woman with second-degree murder in the death of a 21-month-old child.

Const. Jacqueline Chaput says the child was taken to hospital June 29 in critical condition and later died.

Chaput says the child had been abused.

She says the woman was a relative and caregiver of the child, but police aren’t releasing more details.

Chaput also says the family had been involved with “outside agencies,” although she could not say whether that included Manitoba Child and Family Services.

There have been several deaths of children involved with the department in recent years, including that of Phoenix Sinclair, a young girl whose parents were convicted of her murder.
