A father has been accused of murdering his newborn baby son, who died a month after being taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Daniel Sanzone is charged with murder, causing or allowing the death of a child and neglect.

The child's mother, Zoe Howell is charged with causing or allowing the death of a child and neglect.

The boy was two weeks old when he was admitted to hospital in October 2015. He died a month later.

Mr Sanzone, 22, and Miss Howell, 18, are due before Wolverhampton Magistrates' Court later to face the charges connected to the baby's death.
