The parents of a baby boy from Gloucester who died after he was shaken and submerged in water have been jailed.

Three month old Ah'Kiell Walker was found cold and wet at their home in Archdeacon street in July 2016. 

Alistair Walker, who was convicted of manslaughter, has been jailed for 10 years while Hannah Henry, was found guilty of causing or allowing the death, was given 4 years. 

They were also convicted of child cruelty, relating to injuries found on Ah'Kiell, including four broken ribs and a fractured shoulder. 

They both denied harming Ah'Kiell but were found guilty by a jury following a five-week trial at Bristol Crown Court.
