NSW couple charged with murder of three-year-old boy

THE stepfather of a toddler who died in a small central-west New South Wales town has been arrested.

The three year old was found unconscious and not breathing on Sunday August 3 at a home in the sleepy town of Oberon.

He died three days later as a result of his injuries.


Yesterday, detectives arrested the boy’s mother and charged her with murder.

Today, his step dad was also arrested and taken to Bathurst Police Station for questioning.

The couple had told police their son had been injured after tripping over a dog lead at a local park.
