Man remains on bail after arrest over murder of Barnsley baby
A man arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a Barnsley baby remains on police bail.
The 29-year-old was arrested after a nine-week old baby boy suffered a cardiac arrest in November and died three days later.
Emergency services were called to a house in Great Houghton on November 30 and a baby boy in cardiac arrest was transferred to hospital but died three days later.
The youngster’s death was initially treated as ‘unexplained’ but is now being treated as suspicious following a post mortem examination.
Further tests ordered to establish the exact cause of death remain ongoing.
The baby’s identity has not yet been released by South Yorkshire Police.
