A 23-year-old woman, Jade Rogers, has been left inconsolable after a dog murdered her son.

The snarling dog mauled her baby, a four-month-old baby to death after snatching his from his mother’s arms, an inquest heard.

According to Daily Star UK, Miss Rogers managed to save her older son after the “aggressive” Staffordshire bull terrier called Bailey attacked and killed little tot Archie-Joe Darby.

She was speaking to her sons’ dad Daniel on Facetime at her sister’s house in Colchester, Essex, when the tragedy happened on October 13.

The inquest at Chelmsford Coroner’s Court heard toddler Daniel-Jay had been playing in the living room when the dog began growling and “grabbed him by the head”.

As Miss Rogers tried to intervene, the dog dropped Daniel and snatched baby Archie out of her arms.

Detective Inspector Gary Biddle, from Essex Police, said: “He then shook Archie around the room and then dropped Archie. It is at that point that she (Jade) knew that Archie was dead.”

Terrified Miss Rogers went into the kitchen to call 999 but the relentless dog followed her and “grabbed” Daniel off the worktop.

DI Biddle added: “On the 999 call you can hear the dog attacking Daniel and you can hear Jade shouting and screaming and trying to get the dog off Daniel.”

Despite being attacked herself, she managed to drag the dog into a small conservatory at the back of the house while she waited for emergency services to arrive.

Using her body to block the door shut, Miss Rogers was unable to check on either of her injured children.

And when police arrived she couldn’t open the door forcing cops to smash their way in.

DI Biddle said when police officers arrived they saw Archie “lying face down and motionless” and his brother looking “upset” with a severe head injury.

He added: “Because of his (the dog’s) continued aggressive nature, even when police officers arrived, they had to call specialist dog officers.

“The dog’s aggressive behaviour never stopped until he was put to sleep.”

Cops concluded there was “no grounds” for a criminal prosecution and the dog had no history of attacking anyone.

Recording a verdict of accidental death, area coroner for Essex Eleanor McGann said: “I hope you have some happy memories of his (Archie Joe’s) very brief life and I hope you try to remember the happiness of your family.”

“Miss Rogers I commend you for your bravery fighting off a dog attacking both of your children and you carried on fighting until you were able to catch the dog and get it away from your children.”
