A Kindersley woman who pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of her infant daughter will be sentenced in October in Saskatoon Court of Queen’s Bench.
Teenie Rose Steer was charged with second-degree murder but in May she pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter.
RCMP arrested Steer in February 2020 and charged her with the death of her one-month-old infant daughter.
Police say they had responded to a home after receiving a report that a baby was in cardiac arrest on Sept. 27, 2018. First responders and doctors at the Rosetown hospital attempted life-saving measures but the infant was pronounced deceased in hospital.
A September 2018 autopsy revealed information that led investigators to believe the baby’s death was suspicious and RCMP Major Crimes took over the investigation. RCMP didn't reveal details of that information.
