The result of a post-mortem examination is expected to be determined today as investigations continue after the death of a four-year old child.

This is after an alleged suicide attempt at Kasavu, Nausori.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said the mother of the child was still in custody as investigators await the outcome of the post mortem examination, which was conducted yesterday.

Ms Naisoro said the alleged suicide attempt resulted in the death of the four-year old child.

It is alleged the 35-year-old mother left their home in Vuci South, Nausori, on Sunday night and on the way she called her husband to say she was going to take her and her daughter’s lives.

The suspect was alleged to have driven their car off the road near Kasavu, Nausori.

Bystanders saw the vehicle and conveyed mother and daughter to the Nausori Hospital.

The child was pronounced dead on arrival.
