Oxford police investigating after infant dies

OXFORD, Miss. — A mother is behind bars after police say her infant was found unresponsive in Oxford on Sunday.

According to police, first responders were called to the University Inn on Frontage Road around 4 a.m. Sunday.

The child was rushed to Baptist Memorial Hospital- North Mississippi where he/she was pronounced deceased.

Authorities say they charged 31-year-old Stephanie Henry, the child's mother, with manslaughter.

Neighbor Henry Fox say there's a lot of unanswered questions, like whether the mother was the only person involved.

"I want to say it might be," he said.

Henry made her first court appearance on Monday. Her bond was set at $250,000.

Police say they're still investigating and won't confirm any details surrounding the infant's death.

They won't even give the infant's exact age or gender.

The child is now undergoing an autopsy. We've requested a copy of the report.
