STAMFORD - A Stamford couple was in court Friday after police accused them of violently beating their baby boy.

Twenty-six-year-old Aisha Alamri and 24-year-old Wadham Alamri both face charges of assault and risk of injury to a minor.

The baby is at Yale-New Haven Hospital with severe head injuries and bleeding behind the eyes. Investigators say the soft spot in his head is also bulging.

Police say the couple claims the baby fell off a changing table. But doctors say the severe injuries are inconsistent with a fall.
