Woodridge man charged with murder of 5-month-old baby

A MAN is due to face court today charged with the murder of a 5-month-old baby.

The infant was found unresponsive at a home in Cleveland around 8.50am on March 28, 2017.

A triple zero call was made to emergency services who rushed to the address, however the baby boy was declared deceased at the scene.


A 32-year-old man, who police say is from Woodridge, was arrested on Monday following a protracted investigation by the Wynnum Child Protection Investigation Unit and the Child Trauma Unit.

He has since been charged with one count of murder and is due to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court today.
