Man Arrested Over Hunter Toddler Death

Police are set to charge a man with murder following the death of a toddler in Tarro earlier this year.

Paramedics were called to a house in Burgess Parade on June 19, after a 20-month-old girl went into cardiac arrest.

She was rushed to John Hunter Hospital, but sadly passed away.

Strike Force Nerium was formed to investigate the circumstances surrounding the young girl's death.

Detectives arrested a 26-year-old man at a home in Tanilba Bay this morning.
