MAN CHARGED FOLLOWING DEATH OF BABY BOY IN NEW LAMBTON

A 28-year-old New Lambton man will face court today, charged with the alleged murder of a baby boy in his care in the Hunter over the weekend.

Shortly after 4.30am on February 9, emergency services were called to a Fairfield Avenue home at New Lambton, following reports a six-month-old boy had gone into cardiac arrest.

The infant was taken to John Hunter Hospital in a critical condition, but sadly passed away the next day.

A post mortem found the baby boy died as a result of a traumatic head injury.

Following extensive inquiries, police arrested a 28-year-old man at Budgewoi on Wednesday.

He was taken to Wyong Police Station, where he was charged with murder and reckless grievous bodily harm.

The New Lambton man was refused bail.
