Canada Global (Web News) A murder charge has finally been filed by Ottawa police in the death of a seven-week-old infant in 2021.
Following months of investigation into the murder of a newborn on Winthrop Private on October 26, 2021, Ottawa police announced this week that the homicide squad had charged a man and a woman.
Two Ottawa citizens, both 35, were accused of neglecting to supply the necessities of life.
According to police, the charges are the result of a 16-month investigation into “the terrible death of one of our community’s most vulnerable members,” which included the homicide, sexual assault, and child abuse units.
A new allegation of second-degree murder and criminal negligence leading to death has been added against one of the defendants, 35-year-old Ottawa resident Boravy Buth, according to a police update released on Monday.
The 35-year-old Patrick O’Connor is still accused of failing to provide for his basic needs.
The case’s investigators haven’t provided any additional information.
