  • The baby's mother was arrested for suspected mistreatment and is being held while the autopsy is carried out

Investigations are continuing into the death of an 18-month-old baby whose body was brought to the Hospital Materno in Malaga city with a head wound and several bruises on the body, several hours after death.

The baby's mother was arrested for suspected mistreatment and is being held while the autopsy is being carried out.

The results may take a long time as sources close to the case say that the baby had haemophilia which results in people bleeding for a longer time after an injury and bruising easily.

The mark on the head was also believed to have been caused by recent surgery.
