Couple to face trial on baby murder charge

A young mother and father will go on trial in May charged with the murder of their four-month-old baby.

Jayden Moses Wray died three days after being admitted to hospital in July last year and was found to have suffered head injuries and multiple fractures.

His father, Rohan Wray, 21, and mother, Chana Al-Alas, 18, of Islington, north London, appeared at the Old Bailey today.

They are each charged with murder and causing or allowing the death of the baby and a four-to-six week trial is due to start on May 3.

Both are on conditional bail and will appear in court again for a plea and case management hearing on November 30.
