A third person has been charged with manslaughter following investigations into the death of a six-year-old boy two years ago.

Between 22 and 28 April 2015, a man and a woman with their six-year-old son attended a self-healing conference at a facility on Park Road, Hurstville.

Just before 10pm on Monday 28 April 2015, emergency services were called to a nearby hotel on Forest Road, Hurstville, following reports the boy had been found in an unconscious state.

NSW Ambulance paramedics attended the location and commenced CPR, however, the boy could not be revived.

Officers attached to St George Local Area Command established a crime scene and commenced an investigation.

A 56-year-old man and a 41-year-old woman have since been charged with manslaughter and are now before the courts.

Following inquiries, a 64-year-old woman was arrested yesterday (Tuesday 21 March 2017) and taken to Blacktown Police Station where she was charged with manslaughter.

She was refused bail and appeared before Blacktown Local Court yesterday and was granted strict conditional bail to appear before Downing Centre Local Court on Thursday 11 May 2017.

Inquiries into the incident are continuing.
