Couple being questioned in murder probe over death of six-month-old baby

A man and a woman are being questioned on suspicion of murder after the death of a baby boy.

Police were called to an address in Walnut Close in Bilston, West Midlands, UK, just before 2pm on Sunday, after reports of a child in cardiac arrest.

The six-month-old boy was taken to hospital but died a short time later.

A post-mortem examination is due to take place to establish the cause of death.

West Midlands Police have until Wednesday afternoon to decide whether to charge or release two people arrested following the baby's collapse.

A force spokesman said: "Police are investigating the circumstances of the death and two people - a 24-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman - have been arrested on suspicion of murder."
