Brussels couple denies baby killing

A couple from the Brussels borough of Sint-Agatha-Berchem are under arrest after they were detained on suspicion of being responsible for the death of a 3-month-old baby.

A judge in Brussels arrested the couple on Tuesday after their baby died in suspicious circumstances last December.

At the time it was unclear how the child had died and police started an investigation. This led to the couple's arrest on Tuesday.

The child's mother and father stand accused of being responsible for the baby's death, either as perpetrator or as accomplice. The two parents deny all wrong-doing.
