A 69-year-old woman has been arrested in southern Germany after a seven-year-old boy she was babysitting was found dead in the bath.
The child was found dead on Saturday in a bathtub at the woman's home in Kuenzelsau.
Police and prosecutors said initial post-mortem tests found the boy had not drowned, but died as a result of force to his neck.
The woman was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter. Local media reports said she had regularly taken care of the boy for several years.
A judge has ordered the woman to be held in custody while the investigation continues.
