A man has appeared in court in Northern Ireland charged with murdering an 11-month-old baby boy.

Sharyar Ali (31) was looking after Hunter McGleenon while his mother was with her terminally ill grandmother.

A pathologist’s report said the boy’s fatal head injury was not accidental.

A prosecutor told the court Ali, who had been in a relationship with the baby’s mother for a year, was in sole care of the child at a property in Co Armagh when the death happened on Tuesday.
