Mother of Belfast baby Liam O’Keefe is charged with his murder and attempting to kill his two-year-old sister – hours after ‘truly heartbroken’ father speaks of his devastation at vigil
The Daily Mail says: A mother has been charged with the murder of her eight-month-old son and attempted murder of her daughter, two.
Raluca Tagani, 29, is due to appear before Belfast Magistrates’ Court later today.
Police Service Northern Ireland said in a tweet early on Friday morning that a 29-year-old woman had been charged with baby Liam’s murder, and with the attempted murder of another young child.
PSNI’s Detective Chief Inspector Chris Millar said in a tweet: ‘The other young child injured during this incident remains in hospital where her condition is described as stable.’
He went on: ‘I would like to thank the local community for their unwavering support and patience while we continue our investigation into the tragic events of Tuesday evening and I continue to ask that anyone who has any information to contact us.’
Earier Liam’s tearful father attended a vigil in his honour after the baby’s mother was held by police on suspicion of murder.
He had been supposed to travel over to the country later this year for a christening of the boy, but tragically will now be attending his funeral.
