TORONTO -- A Markham, Ont., couple is charged with second-degree murder in the death of their month-old son, York Regional Police said Wednesday.
The parents brought the infant to a local hospital without any vital signs on Aug. 22, police said, adding an initial investigation revealed "suspicious circumstances surrounding the baby's death."
"The cause of death was blunt-force trauma to the head," Const. Laura Nicolle confirmed.
Kien Phat Tran, 21, and Thi My Phuong Bui, 22, turned themselves in to police on Tuesday.
Both were formally charged with second-degree murder when they appeared in a Newmarket, Ont., court Wednesday.
