The parents arrested on suspicion of abusing their twin babies, one of whom died Sunday night, will be brought for a third remand extension Monday morning.

The four-month-old boy died when his heart stopped. He was declared lower-brain dead last week. His twin sister is out of danger and recuperating, according to doctors.

A police source familiar with the investigation told The Jerusalem Post that it is too soon to discuss possible charges that might result from the investigation, adding that suggestions of manslaughter suspicions following the death were premature.
