Couple charged with murdering four-month-old baby
A couple will appear in court today charged with the murder of a four-month-old boy.
The youngster was admitted to Royal Lancaster Infirmary last November after he was found collapsed at his home in the Scotforth area of Lancaster.
He was transferred to Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool with a bleed to the brain but died a few days later.
Christopher Roberts, 18, of Great Dockray, Penrith, and Karen Irvine, 18, of Lark Field, Penrith, have both been charged with murder and causing or allowing the death of a child.
A spokeswoman for Lancashire Constabulary said they had been remanded to appear in custody before Lancaster magistrates' court today.
