A former Kenyan TV presenter and her husband were questioned by police after their 3-year-old son died at their home in Australia.

During a phone interview on Thursday, Channel 7 News confirmed that Esther Adongo Arunga and Quincy Timberlake were taken into police custody.

Kenya's High Commissioner to Australia also told Nation.co.ke: "We have a situation of a family who lost their child and police are investigating."

The parents said he was playing with his brother when he fell down the stairs, Australia's Channel 7 News reported.

They allegedly gave him a painkiller and put him to sleep, but his condition worsened.
