Ontario Provincial Police in Wasaga Beach have arrested a homeless woman in connection with the death of her infant son in April.

Police first received the call April 17 just before midnight about the death of an 11-month-old infant, sparking an investigation that ended with the arrest of the woman this week.

The 39-year-old was arrested Sept. 22 and charged with manslaughter, criminal negligence causing death, failing to provide the necessities of life and fentanyl possession.

She was scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Barrie on Wednesday for a bail hearing.
