A 31-year-old Couva woman is expected to appear at the Couva Magistrates Court on Friday to face charges of manslaughter in the death of three-year-old Isaiah Hazel.

Police said the woman Sherry Smart was charged on Thursday after investigators received instructions from the Direction of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to charge her with manslaughter.

Hazel died on July 4 from hyperthermia and dehydration after being left in a bus driven by Smart.

Investigators sought advice from the DPP last Saturday but were told to release her pending further enquiries.
