Ollie Davis, who was just four weeks old, was found dead in his home in Leicester on October 21, 2017.

Michael Davis, 27, and Kayleigh Driver, 29, both from Leicester, were arrested six days after the police began their investigation into the infant's death.

The police have said that they have since carried out a "complex investigation" into the incident.

Davis and Driver have been charged with murder and causing or allowing the death of a child between October 9 and October 21, 2017.
