Pair quizzed over baby boy’s death
A MAN and woman have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of a 13-week-old baby boy.
The infant was taken to hospital from an address in Velville Court in Newcastle upon Tyne with serious injuries on Friday.
Police were told on Monday that he had died.
Inquiries suggested the baby’s injuries were not accidental and the death is being treated as murder, Northumbria Police said.
A 34-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman are being questioned.
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Ord said: “We know this will shock and sadden the local community and I would like to reassure them we are doing everything we can to establish exactly what happened and how the baby came to suffer such fatal injuries.”
