Police have charged a 35-year-old man with murdering a six-month-old baby in Perth.

Paramedics were called to a home in Chiltern Avenue about 8:00pm on Thursday, and found the six-month-old girl with life-threatening injuries, reports ABC news.

The child could not be revived and was pronounced dead at nearby Armadale Hospital a short time later.

The man, who police say knew the child, was refused bail and is due to appear in court on Friday.

More details to come…

  • Some people should never be parents. RIP little one. Hope he gets jail time, but bet it doesn’t happen – let off cause he is too drugged to be aware of what he was doing.


  • These stories are always so sad.


  • He was really the father. The mother wasn’t at home at the moment. Crazy. :-(


  • Murdering a 6 months old baby !! what drives people ?
    So much darkness in this world.


  • Absolutely disgusting! Poor little baby.


  • I hope they find out who did this to the baby,so sad.


  • Rest in peace little girl. Hope they get to the bottom of it soon.


  • If you have an issue with a baby seek urgent assistance, don’t inflict horrific injuries on an innocent defenceless baby. I know it can be very frustrating if they cry a lot but there has to be a reason for the beginning of it.
    I don’t think other prisoners will be friendly towards the guy either. He should get at least 10 years + 1 for each injury found with no parole or early release for any reason.


  • Oh, this is just horrific and heartbreaking – poor, poor little baby …. hope they throw the book at him and more!


  • I hope he gets justice served to him


  • Why so much violence against babies? Why people decide to become parents if then they are not willing to love them? :-(
