Doncaster Man Jailed Over The Death Of A Baby
A Doncaster man's been jailed for 12 years - after being found guilty of causing the death of a 3 month old baby.
26 year old James Larkin was charged with manslaughter and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice after the child's death in 2014.
The child's mum, 21 year old Laura Ostle, was sentenced to 18 months for perverting the course of justice.
Tests showed the child suffered chronic bleeding on his brain, caused by being shaken.
Senior Investigating Officer Detective Chief Inspector Dave Stopford said:
“The sentences passed today can never bring back the young life that was taken, but I am pleased that both Larkin and Ostle are behind bars.
“This has been a lengthy and upsetting investigation for all concerned and I repeat my thanks to the members of the jury, who had to sit through weeks of distressing medical evidence and to the officers in this case, who have worked tirelessly to get justice for the young victim.”
