Police investigating the murder of a two-year-old Coventry boy have appealed for more information from the public.

Khaleel Hussain died at Birmingham Children's Hospital on 22 October after suffering a head injury.

He had been transferred there the previous day from University Hospital Coventry, after falling ill at his home on Richmond Street.

A 21-year-old man and 25-year-old woman arrested in connection with the investigation remain on bail.

Urged to come forward

West Midlands Police said Khaleel's death was being treated as murder.

Det Ch Insp Dean Young said: "We are still trying to piece together exactly what happened before Khaleel suffered the injuries that ultimately led to his death.

"I am keen to speak to anyone who had contact with him or his family during his very short life, particularly in the days and weeks before he died.

"We have spoken to lots of people as part of the investigation so far, but I'm sure there are others out there who may have information that could help us, and I would urge them to come forward."

A post-mortem examination was inconclusive and further tests are being carried out.
