Wolverhampton couple on malnourished baby murder charge

The parents of a baby girl who died from severe malnutrition have been charged with her murder.

Brian and Precious Kandare from Park Village in Wolverhampton were arrested shortly after nine-month-old Rebecca's death in January.

A post-mortem examination revealed the child had rickets and died from pneumonia caused by malnourishment.

Mr Kandare, 32, and Mrs Kandare, 36, are due at Wolverhampton Magistrates' court on Saturday morning.
