A 30-year-old woman previously arrested on suspicion of murdering an infant in an asylum accommodation in Rottneros Sunne municipality, has been joined by a 20-year-old Somali man, who is also suspected of participating in the crime.
The five-month-old baby girl was transported from the asylum accommodation at the Sunne Hotel & Camping lodge, to the Central Hospital in Karlstad, but her life could not be saved.
Doctors found that there were uncertainties surrounding the death and a 30-year-old woman was detained and later arrested last week on suspicion of murder.
A 20-year-old man, a Somali, was chased for several days, before being captured on Sunday and arrested on suspicion of murdering the baby.
Police have so far been reticent about what relationship the two suspects have with each other, or to the child that was murdered.
