RCMP say they considered the baby’s death suspicious after an autopsy after her death in September 2018 revealed information that led investigators to call in RCMP Major Crimes to take over the investigation.

According to police, on Sept. 27, 2018, they responded to a home after they received a report that an infant was in cardiac arrest. First responders and doctors at the Rosetown hospital performed life-saving measures but the infant was pronounced dead in hospital.

Steer is remanded in custody and had been ordered not to have any contact with three potential witnesses.

In June 2017, Steer graduated from a local college with her Adult Basic Education and was given an Achievement Award.

She has three more children.

Steer reappears in Saskatoon Provincial Court on April 30 to speak to the charges.

The charges haven't been proven in court.
