The trial of a 37-year-old man accused of murdering his partner’s 45-day-old baby begins today (Monday) in an Almeria courtroom.

According to prosecutor’s provisional documents, the suspect – known only as Hicham B. – allegedly murdered the new-born after claiming his partner was not keeping the house clean.

And the baby died of brain trauma practically immediately, the according to the Public Ministry.

Prosecutors said the events happened at a property in Nijar’s Campohermoso district in June 2016.

Lawyers are requesting 26 years and 9 months in jail for the alleged murder and domestic violence taking place over a two-year period.

Hicham B. went on the run and planned to evade charges by fleeing to Morocco. But agents tracked him down to a caravan in a Nijar shanty town where he was arrested, according to a Guardia Civil investigation
