Woman arrested on suspicion for murder of baby
Two people, a man and a woman from Kalmar, were taken into custody by police on Saturday. The suspected crime is thought to have taken place some time between Friday and Saturday.
According to Aftonbladet, the suspects were in a taxi. The driver raised the alarm when the child stopped crying.
– What I can say is that the incident happened somewhere between Kalmar and Kristianstad, said police spokesman Robert Loeffel on Monday.
The man was suspected on probable cause of murder, but he was released on Wednesday. The woman has been detained on reasonable suspicion of murder or infanticide.
An autopsy on the baby will be carried out.
– We hope to get the results in a few days, said Robert Loeffel on Monday.
The detention hearing was held on Wednesday in Kalmar District Court.
