Two people are due to appear in court today to face further charges in connection with the death of a baby in Wolverhampton, West Midlands Police says. Unemployed 22-year-old Daniel Sanzone from Whitburn Close, Wolverhampton, has been charged with murder, causing or allowing the death of a child and neglect, the force says. It adds that 18-year-old Zoe Howell, from the same address, is accused of causing or allowing the death of a child and neglect.
Previous charges for the pair - grievous bodily harm, engaging in sexual activity with a child and allowing serious injury to a child - still stand. They were brought after the then two-week-old child was taken to hospital with serious injuries in October last year.
The boy spent almost a month in intensive care before he died.
