Hampshire Police have re-arrested two people following the death of a baby in Hythe in February 2019
On Saturday 2nd February 2019, an emergency ambulance crew reported that they were dealing with a one-month-old baby who was seriously unwell.
The baby was rushed to Southampton General Hospital but tragically died on Wednesday 6th February.
Following the incident in Feb 2019, Hampshire Police initially arrested a man and a woman from the Hythe area on suspicion of attempted murder.
The couple were questioned by detectives and were released on bail pending further enquiries.
In August 2019, the same two individuals were re-arrested by Hampshire Police on suspicion of murder. They were released on bail as detectives continued to gather evidence.
Today, Hampshire Police have confirmed that they have re-arrested a 26-year-old woman on suspicion of murder, and a 42-year-old man on suspicion of allowing the death of a child.
Both remain in police custody at this time.
