In a tragic turn of events, 29-year-old Benjamin Joseph Swann has been charged with the murder of a baby boy in Werribee. The infant was discovered with severe assault-related injuries and succumbed to them in the hospital.
Swann, though not the biological father, had a connection to the child. During his court appearance, Swann displayed concern for two women present, even mouthing “I love you” before being remanded into custody.
The accused is scheduled to reappear in the Melbourne Magistrate Court on June 13, as the community watches closely for further developments in this heartbreaking case.
