A baby boy who was stabbed to death in a horrific knife attack in Belfast has been pictured for the first time – as police arrested a woman on suspicion of murder.

Liam O’Keefe, who was just eight weeks old, was found dead at a house in the Ardoyne area of the Northern Irish capital on Tuesday night.

A two-year-old girl, later confirmed as his sister, was discovered in a critical condition. She was rushed to hospital but is now stable. 

Police confirmed a 29-year-old woman had been arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder. She was also taken to hospital.

She has since been released into police custody for questioning, the PSNI said today.
