Dead baby’s parents charged

A Northland couple whose sick baby died in December were arrested this morning and charged with “failing to provide the necessaries of life”.

Four-month-old Caleb Nathaniel Tribble died at his rural home near Pakotai, about 60km northwest of Whangarei, in December.

It was alleged that his parents, David and Cathy Tribble, had neglected to seek medical help for him.

Whangarei police confirmed to NZPA that the couple had been charged following medical and legal opinions.

They were to appear in Whangarei District Court this afternoon, and had indicated they would plead not guilty.
