NSW: Accused baby killer refused bail

SYDNEY, Dec 10 AAP - A man accused of murdering a baby has been refused bail in Sydney today.

Jeong Ming Foo, 33, from Parramatta, is facing murder charges over the August death
of an 11-week old baby.

Parramatta Bail Court Registrar Justice Ross Lawton said the denial of bail was appropriate,
despite several unusual aspects to the allegation.

Mr Foo, a Singaporean national, was arrested yesterday morning (AEDT) at Sydney's airport's
domestic terminal after returning from a visit to Adelaide.

The arrest was made by members of Strike Force Hoylake, which had been formed to investigate
the circumstances of the baby's death.

Mr Foo was subsequently charged with murder by the Child Protection and Sex Crimes Squad.

In March, family members attended the Children's Hospital at Westmead with the critically
ill baby.

The boy later died at a Dundas health care facility on August 31.

The matter has been adjourned until tomorrow.
