OTTAWA - A Cornwall, Ont.-area coroner will investigate after a child -- born in an Ottawa jail a year ago -- passed away at home early Sunday.
Police say they responded around 5 a.m. when the family called to say 13-month-old Gionni was found without vital signs.
The child was taken to hospital and later pronounced dead.
An autopsy is scheduled for later this week.
The little boy has been in the news since his eventful birth at the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre, where his mom was in labour for hours without an ambulance being called.
Julie Bilotta gave birth to her son in her cell Sept. 29, 2012, as guards stood by.
Bilotta's Facebook page -- under the name Julie Dakota Garlow -- is filled with photographs and heartfelt messages of condolence.
