DISTRAUGHT: Liam O’Keefe with his late baby boy Liam jnr and an unidentified child

The Police Ombudsman is assessing a visit cops made to a family home in north Belfast where just days later a baby was stabbed to death.

Officers attended the Ardoyne address, now boarded up and covered in floral tributes, four days before eight-week-old Liam O’Keefe and sister Kayla (2) were stabbed.

Baby Liam was pronounced dead at the scene while Kayla was rushed to hospital in a critical condition before being stabilised late last week.
