Middlesbrough woman Shauna Donnelly charged with murdering baby

A 24-year-old woman has been charged with murdering a newborn baby boy in Middlesbrough.

Shauna Donnelly aged 24 of Wordsworth Road in Teesville now faces a murder charge and will appear at Teesside Magistrates Court on Wednesday morning.

A police spokeswoman said: “This follows an investigation, which commenced in October 2019, into the death of a newborn baby boy in the Teesville area of Middlesbrough.”

After police descended in October, neighbours told Teesside Live that detectives had been carrying out door-to-door inquiries in the area and asking for CCTV footage.

The woman will appear at Teesside Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 1, April, Cleveland Police said.

The charge follows an investigation into the death of a baby in the Teesville area of Middlesbrough last October.
