Detectives granted additional 36 hours to question man over death of baby Hunter

Market Street Keady

Detectives leading an investigation into the sudden passing of an infant in Keady have been granted an additional 36 hours to question a man in connection with the death.

Little baby Hunter McGlennan died on Tuesday and the 31-year-old man was arrested in the Craigavon area shortly afterwards.

A post mortem was to be carried out today in a bid establish the cause.

On Wednesday afternoon, police were given an additional 24 hours to question the man arrested but a further extension of a day and a half has been granted.

He is currently being detained at Banbridge.

The town of Keady has been rocked by the news but have rallied behind the McGleenan family, with a fundraising target of £5,000 met within 24 hours.

The family also suffered a double heartbreak with the passing of Hunter’s great grandmother – mum Nicole’s grandmother – on Wednesday.

Ann McGleenan’s funeral is due to take place on Saturday from her daughter Grania’s home.
