A mum and stepfather have appeared in court today accused of beating their toddler son to death at a house in Wolverhampton.
Police and paramedics were called to an address in Wednesfield High Street just before midnight on Sunday (20 Nov) where the boy, aged two-and-a-half, was found with head and body injuries.
He was pronounced dead at hospital a short while later and a post mortem examination has shown he died from peritonitis as a result of blunt force trauma to his abdomen.
Last night the boy’s mum, 25-year-old Sindyann Regis, and 27-year-old stepdad Chevaze Mcgregor were charged with murder.
They have appeared at Walsall Magistrates Court today where they were remanded in custody to appear at Wolverhampton Crown Court tomorrow.
