Man charged in relation to death of Logan baby

Police have charged a man in relation to the suspicious death of a four-month old girl in Logan with allegations she was left at home alone on at least two occasions

The infant was taken to Logan Hospital last month suffering life-threatening injuries.

She was then rushed to the Queensland Children’s Hospital in Brisbane in a critical condition but died on Tuesday, November 20.


The baby’s aunt Sandra Houston has been charged with the girl’s murder and remains in custody.

Her case was this week adjourned until April but she’s expected to make a bail application in the Supreme Court.

It was revealed the baby had been placed in the care of Houston following the death of her sister.

Police have today charged a 37-year-old man from Waterford West in relation to the girl’s death.

He’s been charged with six counts of leaving a child unattended and one count of child cruelty.

He’s due to appear in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court on January 14.
