      A Walsall father fatally shook his newborn son causing ‘catastrophic injuries’. Marcus Carter has pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of his 10-week-old son and has today been jailed at Bristol Crown Court for seven years and eight months.

      Emergency services were called to an address in Easton, Bristol, on August 10, 2020, due to concerns for the well-being of Carter’s son, the court heard. The baby was subsequently taken to Bristol Children’s Hospital for treatment.

      But sadly he died 11 days later on 21 August 2020. Carter, 43, of Burns Road, Walsall, initially denied responsibility for his son’s death and lied to police at the time of the incident and in subsequent police interviews.

      It was only after learning the expert medical evidence that he acknowledged that his actions led to the death of his son.

      In a personal statement from the victim, the baby’s mother said: “These past few years have been nothing more than a living nightmare. It has been torture.

      “My heart aches every day and the pain is unbearable.”
