The baby died two days after being hospitalized. After the brutal death of an infant which occurred on July 26 around 5 p.m., the deputy public prosecutor of Saint-Etienne, André Merle, announced this Saturday that “the approved childminder domiciled in L’Horne (Loire) , was presented last weekend to an investigating judge.
She was indicted for “willful violence resulting in death without intention to give it, and placed in pre-trial detention”.
According to the results of the autopsy, the body of the 6-month-old baby revealed death caused by shaken baby syndrome.
