Parents arrested over toddler death

Post  SyFy on Mon 18 Jul - 21:22

A mother and father have been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a two-and-a-half-year-old boy.

The ambulance service called police to a house in Barnoldswick, Lancashire, at about 0930 BST on Sunday.

The child's parents, both 24, were arrested on suspicion of murder and child cruelty.

A spokesman for Lancashire Police said: "The death is currently being treated as unexplained and two people have been arrested in connection with the death."

A post-mortem examination has been carried out to establish the cause of death and police are awaiting its results

Almost every ten days in England and Wales one child is killed at the hands of their parent. In half (56% on average) of all cases of children killed at the hands of another person, the parent is the principal suspect.
