The Basic Public Prosecutor's Office in Skopje issued an Order to conduct an investigative procedure against a 44-year-old man, who, during domestic violence, took the life of his own child, thereby committing a crime - Murder under Article 123, paragraph 2, point 2 of the Criminal Code.

On the night between September 25 and 26, while the suspect was in the home with four minor children, including the three-month-old son, he started hitting the child with his hands and feet on the head and body. In this way, he inflicted multiple injuries that caused bleeding in the cranial cavity, as a result of which the three-month-old baby died.

Since there are circumstances that indicate the danger of the suspect fleeing to avoid prosecution, the possibility that he may try to influence the witnesses, and even repeat the crime, the competent public prosecutor submitted to the judge of the preliminary procedure a proposal for determining the measure of detention.​
