The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in the northern Governorate of Irbid, Wednesday, arrested a man of an Arab nationality accused of strangling his 11-moth-old son to death, according to the Public Security Directorate (PSD).

The mother of the child said that her son had been strangled to death after his father, her ex husband, took him and returned the boy unconscious, only to find out after calling 911 that the child was dead, the PSD explained.

It added that the father had been arrested soon afterwards and confessed to the crime as the investigation is still underway.
