Arrest and Arraignment in February Baby Death Investigation

A 27-year-old Quincy woman has been arrested for assault on a baby who later died.

Shu Feng Hsu, 27, of 34 Sewall St., Quincy, was arrested at her residence this morning (March 22, 2018) by detectives from the Quincy Police Department Special Investigation Unit and a State Police detective assigned to the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office. Police had obtained a warrant for the charge of Assault and Battery on a Child causing serious bodily injury.

Officials were called to the 34 Sewall Street address on February 15, 2018, for medical assistance for 11-month old Chloe Chen, who also resided at that address along with her parents and others. Chloe Chen was transported to Boston Medical Center and passed away on February 17, 2018.

“This investigation is not yet complete, but working with Quincy Police we have developed probable cause for this charge to be brought and arraigned today,” District Attorney Michael Morrissey said. “The investigation continues.”

Hsu is currently being booked at the Quincy Police Headquarters. She is expected to be arraigned in the Quincy District Court before the end of today.
