7-year-old girl dies day after police found her in critical condition in home in Granby, Que.
Pair arrested in connection with girl's injuries may now face more serious charges in court Wednesday
A 7-year-old girl has died in hospital, a day after she was found in critical condition at a home in Granby, Que., by local police.
Quebec provincial police are now handling the investigation. Police have not released the girl's cause of death.
Two people were arrested Tuesday morning, before the girl died. They appeared in court that afternoon.
A 35-year-old woman was charged with aggravated assault endangering a life and forcible confinement. A 30-year-old-man was charged with forcible confinement.
Both are expected back in court Thursday and could face more serious charges now that the girl has died.
Radio-Canada learned that the girl attended a Granby elementary school until she was recently pulled out to be home-schooled.
The local French school board, Commission scolaire du Val-des-Cerfs, deployed crisis teams to the school the girl attended.
"The team includes psychologists and psycho-educators. They're there in the field to ensure an organization of services to support students and teachers," said Alexandra Langlois, a school board spokesperson.
