A TYLDESLEY man has been charged with the murder of a two-year-old boy.

Daniel Rigby, 22, will appear at Bolton Magistrates’ Court today (Thursday) for the murder of Rio Smedley, who was rushed to hospital on Sunday after going into cardiac arrest.

But despite desperate attempts to revive the tot, from Bolton, he died a short time later. A post mortem has since revealed that he died as a result of sever abdominal injuries.
