Parents charged with murder of baby son

The parents of a three-month-old boy who died from a serious head injury have been charged with his murder.

Rifat Mohammed died hours after his parents appeared in court charged with assaulting him.

Mohammed Miah, 36, and Rebeka Nazmin, 31, of Poplar, east London, were charged with causing grievous bodily harm, which has now been replaced with the murder charge.

Rifat was admitted to hospital on 4 July, but died the next day.

A trial date has been set for 27 February 2017 at the Old Bailey.
