RCMP say they have arrested two people in connection with the sudden death of a newborn in Liverpool.

No charges had been laid as of late yesterday afternoon against the 25-year-old mother or her 31-year-old common-law husband.

According to Cpl. Grant Webber of the Queens County detachment of the RCMP, the woman brought the deceased baby boy to Queens General Hospital on Monday night. She had reportedly given birth to the infant at home last Wednesday.

An autopsy has been performed, but police have not released the results.
