The parents of the two and a half month old baby who died on March 5 at Makarios Hospital will remain in the cell for eight days. Although police were initially investigating a case of sudden death, the autopsy changed the data after it showed severe craniocerebral injury as well as two other fractures and subdural hematoma of the spinal cord. The autopsy ruled out the possibility of an accident and concluded that it was a malicious traumatic brain injury.
As a result, the police arrested the two parents of the baby, aged 22 and 37, last night. The two were taken today to the Limassol District Court, which ordered their detention for eight days. Among other things, you are investigating a homicide case against them.
According to what was heard in court, the parents took the baby to the Limassol hospital when they realized that he was not breathing well. What the police are examining is exactly what happened during the transport of the baby, since the autopsy revealed various fractures and other evidence that are not in line with the allegations of the suspects. The infant was also found to have fractures not related to cardiopulmonary resuscitation issues.
