Inspector Phillip Dodd, crime chief for the Kingston Western Police, said the woman was questioned over the weekend by detectives. She reportedly told the cops that the baby was given to her by someone in Spanish Town.

Charges are expected to be laid in the case later this week.

The woman was arrested last week when she visited the Registrar General'sI Department (RGD) in St Catherine to register the birth of the stolen baby. Officials of the RGD became suspicious when the woman gave conflicting information about the child and when she gave birth.

DNA tests were later conducted and these confirmed that the baby boy was the one stolen from Victoria Jubilee.

The child was handed over to his parents on Friday.
