A 46-year-old woman has been arrested over a blaze which claimed the lives of a young Melbourne couple and their newborn.
Abbey Forrest, 19, her partner Inda Sohal, 28, and their 19-day-old daughter Ivy were asleep upstairs in their Point Cook townhouse when it went up in flames at about 3.40am on Wednesday.
The couple were confirmed dead later that morning, but Ivy’s body was not found in what was left of the three-bedroom, two-storey home until later that day.
Arson and Explosives Squad detectives arrested a woman on Thursday morning over the fatal blaze.
Police say she is known to the family and remains in police custody.
More to come.
