Parents arrested in death of Mooretown infant

·1 min read

Two people have been charged with manslaughter and death by criminal negligence following the death of an infant in St. Clair Township last year.

Brock MacPherson, 30 of St. Clair and Elizabeth McPhail, 30 of Sarnia, were arrested Sept. 15. Both have been released on bail with future court dates.

On the afternoon of Nov. 20, 2020 OPP and EMS officers were called to a house on Penrise Street in Mooretown. Nine month-old Tressa MacPherson, daughter of Brock and Elizabeth, was found unresponsive and passed away that day.

The OPP Criminal Investigation Branch conducted the investigation which resulted in Tressa’s parents being arrested nearly 10 months later.
