A girl in Queensland has been charged with homicide greater than a decade after the loss of life of her child woman.

The three-month-old child woman was discovered “not breathing” and unresponsive by paramedics at a property southeast of Brisbane on 2 September 2011, and died 4 days later.

“The baby was transported to the Redland Bay Hospital and later the Mater Children’s Hospital, where she died on September 6, 2011,” Queensland Police stated in an announcement on Saturday.

While the newborn’s loss of life was investigated on the time, there was no proof of any “foul play” and the standing of the investigation remained undetermined.

Following “new and credible information” obtained by the police from a neighborhood supply in January 2024, investigation into the woman’s loss of life was relaunched.

Officials began a particular operation with the brand new leads, involving detectives from baby safety providers.

“Operation Whiskey Magra, involving detectives from the Bayside Child Protection Investigation Unit (CPIU) and the Crime and Intelligence Command Child Trauma Unit, was commenced,” in keeping with Queensland Police.

On Friday, they arrested the newborn woman’s mom, a 29-year-old girl, within the Logan suburb of Kingston city, and charged her with homicide.

“She was refused police bail and is due to appear before the Brisbane Magistrates Court today, 9 March,” the Queensland Police stated.

The girl was 17 years previous on the time of the homicide 12 years in the past.

Detectives must take into account whether or not the lady could be tried as a minor.

“These people had to deal with the death of a child 12 years ago, which I could only imagine would be horrific,” Queensland police officer Paul Dalton instructed native information.

“Then for detectives to come and tell you 12 years later that we think your child had been murdered and not only that but that someone that you know is responsible… I can only imagine what they’re going through,” Mr Dalton stated.
