A three-month-old boy had sustained injuries and was conveyed to Royal Bournemouth Hospital, before being taken to Southampton General Hospital for specialist treatment.
Sadly, Julian Hinz was pronounced dead at 5.10am on Saturday 9 April 2016.
His death was treated as suspicious and a murder investigation led by the Major Crime Investigation Team was launched.
Today, Tuesday 3 May 2016, Julianâ€™s father â€“ 33-year-old Robert Edmond Hinz of Bournemouth â€“ has been charged with murder and will appear before Bournemouth Magistratesâ€™ Court tomorrow, Wednesday 4 May 2016.
Detective Inspector Richard Dixey, of Dorset Policeâ€™s Major Crime Investigation Team, said: â€œFollowing a thorough and detailed investigation, we have consulted with the Crown Prosecution Service who has authorised the charge of murder.
â€œFamily liaison officers have updated Julianâ€™s family with this development and our thoughts are with them.
â€œI would appeal for the family to be given privacy at this extremely difficult and traumatic time.
â€œIt is also important to stress â€“ as is typical in such circumstances â€“ that it would be entirely inappropriate for Dorset Police to comment further ahead of the trial. It is vital that the justice system is allowed to follow its course.â€
