Naugatuck police say the investigation into the untimely death of an infant Tuesday morning is still "very active," and an autopsy has taken place, but they have no other new information to release.

An announcement Naugatuck Police issued at 3:54 p.m. stated:

"An autopsy was conducted today by the State Medical Examiner’s Office. It is not know when the results of the autopsy will be available."

"The investigation remains active and Detectives are examining all elements and circumstances leading up to the time this incident occurred."

Police gave a few more details about the unrelated domestic incident in the same home: Cherish Curtain, 32 and Jennifer Ramos, 27, were each charged wth disorderly conduct and released on $500 bonds. Each appeared Tuesday in state Superior Court in Waterbury.

Update: 10 p.m. Tuesday
Little information was available Tuesday night about the untimely death of an infant earlier in the day and the investigation remains active.

Officers and paramedics were called to 20 Diamond Street at 7 a.m. Tuesday for reports of an unresponsive child. Paramedics performed CPR and the infant was rushed to Waterbury Hospital, where it was later pronounced dead.

Naugatuck detectives and officers from the State Police Major Crime Division were at the scene Tuesday collecting evidence.

Two people — Cherish Curtin and Jennifer Ramos — were arrested at the residence Monday night for a domestic dispute, however neither woman was the child’s mother and the two incidents appear to be unrelated, according to Naugatuck police Lt. Bryan Cammarata.

Curtin and Ramos were both charged with disorderly conduct and released on $500 bond pending their arraignments Tuesday.
