Jerusalem Police will request Tuesday that the magistrates court instruct that an autopsy be carried out on the six-month-old girl who was pronounced dead at Jerusalem’s Hadassah University Hospital at Ein Kerem on Monday.
The autopsy will shed some light on the causes of the death of the baby whose parents are suspected of massive neglect.
Police estimated that the infant girl had taken sick at some point over the weekend, and was not given proper medical treatment until it was too late.
