MILWAUKEE (AP) — A woman has been arrested in the 2018 death of an infant in Fond du Lac.
The 26-year-old woman was arrested Thursday afternoon by Fond du Lac detectives in Milwaukee where she currently resides, according to police.
Authorities say 2-month-old Rehloari Pankey-Brown died in June 2018 after first responders were called to a Fond du Lac residence on a report of a baby choking.
The infant was rushed to St. Agnes Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Police say an autopsy showed the child’s death was the result of a homicide.
Officials did not immediately provide additional details. The name of the suspect has not been officially released.
According to a report from the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families, the infant’s 1-year-old sister was deemed unsafe and removed from the home and placed in the care of a relative.
