Brent Allen Warren appeared in court Thursday afternoon on one count of first-degree murder stemming from a domestic incident early Wednesday morning that saw his son fatally injured.

Warren will remain in custody until his next court appearance on Aug. 8. The court has ordered a publication ban on the case.

Mounties say they were called to the family home in the 2600-block South Alder Street in Campbell River’s quiet Willow Point neighbourhood at around 2: 30 a.m. Wednesday to assist paramedics.

Officers arrived to find the boy severely injured. He died in hospital just after 3 a.m.

According to RCMP spokesman Sgt. Craig Massey, two other people, including Warren, were taken to hospital to be treated for injuries.

Other details – including the boy’s injuries – are being withheld by investigators.

A spokesperson for B.C.’s Representative for Children and Youth – a government agency that may investigate a child’s injury or death if the child or child’s family “was receiving a reviewable service” – said the agency does not expect to get involved in the case.

The South Alder Street home remained blocked off Thursday as forensic investigators combed the area for evidence.

Massey said he expected a “lengthy” investigation into the boy’s death.
