A man and woman have been charged over the death of a two-year-old boy in Wanganui last month.

Karl Richard Arc Perigo-Check died in Wanganui hospital on 24 October after receiving severe internal injuries.

A 22-year-old man has been charged with his murder and a 30 year-old woman has been charged with assault and perverting the course of justice.

The dead boy is the son of Karl Check, a gang member jailed over the death of another toddler in a drive-by shooting in 2007.
