An eight-month old baby was killed allegedly by its mother in an apartment building at Vuosaari area in Helsinki, police said on Friday.

Responding to an alarm on Wednesday Helsinki police rushed to the spot and recovered the body of the minor baby from there.

Police arrested the 40-year-old mother for her alleged involvement in the suspected murder.

They carried out a technical investigation into the incident and talked to the neighbouring people.

Police, however, did not suspect involvement of any other person in the suspected murder and the motive of the incident could not be known immediately.

“We are now conducting preliminary investigation and trying to find out the motive of the suspected murder,” said Detective Inspector of Helsinki police Tuomas Lindholm.

The suspect mother will be produced before the court on Saturday.
