A mother and her partner have been charged with the murder of a “smart and curious” nine-year-old boy in a Worcestershire home.

Alfie Steele was found in critical condition in a Droitwich home on February 18 last year before being flown to Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where he later died.

Suspect Charged

His mother, Carla Scott, 34, and her partner, Dirk Howell, 39, have been charged with murder.

They will also appear in Worcester Crown Court on February 25 for child abuse.

At the time of the incident, West Mercia police said investigators considered Alfie’s death “inexplicable”.

His grandfather Paul Scott described him in a moving tribute as “brave as a lion”.

He said, “We are completely devastated by the loss of Alfie, he had a smile that would melt the butter.

“He was smart, curious and brave like a lion; He was a good Christian boy who was full of God.

“He has never backed down from anything and he was not afraid.”

Local residents marked Alfie’s death by displaying blue teddy bears and bear motifs in shop windows.

One of them said: “He was a smiling face and a happy boy. When I saw the two ambulances land near the house, I was amazed. I knew immediately that something terrible had happened.

“It’s just heartbreaking to lose a life at such a young age.”
