A mother posted a loving Facebook message about her newborn son just moments before he was allegedly stabbed by his father.
Three-week-old Andrei Stefan and his mother Andreea, 21, were attacked inside an address in Wallsend, North Tyneside, in the afternoon of October 2.
They were rushed to hospital but Andrei died four days later, while Andreea is said to be in a stable condition.
Denis Erdinch Beytula, 27, understood to have been in a relationship with Andreea, was arrested shortly after the attacks.
It has now emerged that Ms Stefan posted a message Facebook message in the moments before the attack saying: ‘I asked God to send me a man who will always love me. So, he gave me a son.’
Beytula appeared at Tyneside Magistrates Court last week charged with two counts of attempted murder. The boy’s mother, Andreea Stefan, 21, (right) was also taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries but police now say that she is in a stable condition

Detective Chief Inspector Dave Cole, of Northumbria Police, said earlier this week: ‘This is a devastating time for the baby’s family. Specialist officers continue to offer them support and I know the community in Wallsend are by their side too.
‘It is impossible to imagine what they are going through and I would ask the public to continue to respect the family’s privacy at this time.
‘A man has been charged in relation to the incident and we will continue to work closely with the Crown Prosecution Service as the case moves forward.’
Beytula is now due to appear at Newcastle Crown Court on October 31.
