A mother and her partner have pleaded not guilty to murdering her 13-month-old son.

Hardeep Hunjan, 26, and Ronnie Tayler-Morrison, 21, both of Luton, were both charged following the death of Noah Serra-Morrison.

He was found at a property on Crawley Road in the early hours of 21 November and was pronounced dead at Luton and Dunstable Hospital later that morning.

They were remanded in custody and a trial date was set for 8 June.

The pair, who both lived at Crawley Road, also both denied charges of causing or allowing the death of a child and the assault, ill-treatment, neglect or abandonment of a child likely to cause unnecessary suffering or injury.

The trial at Luton Crown Court is expected to last about four weeks.
