6 month old Kayden Walker was found collapsed at the family home by paramedics.

After a lengthy investigation, West Midlands Police say they've charged a 26 year-old father with murdering his 6 month old son.

Ricky Walker was arrested last June after Kayden died in hospital - so was mum Laura Davis.

The pair from Bilston had been on bail since but detectives now have enough evidence to charge them.

24 year-old Laura Davis from Walnut Close is accused of causing or allowing the death of a child, as well as ill treatment or neglect of a child.

She's been bailed to appear at Walsall Magistrates in the coming weeks.

Ricky Walker is also charged with causing or allowing the death of a child and appeared before Magistrates on Friday 27th October.
