Father to face court over death of six-year-old son

Father to face court over death of six-year-old son

A father will appear in court over the death of his six-year-old son who suffered long-term head injuries as a baby.

Last year, Kevin Craig Toye, 28, of St Nicholas Road, Great Yarmouth, was charged with the manslaughter and ill-treatment of Baylee Varley.

The child suffered serious head injuries as a baby following an alleged attack in 2008 and has required medical treatment ever since.

The boy from Ormesby, Norfolk, died in March 2014. A pre-inquest review into his death heard that he died from bronchopneumonia due to long-term complications from a head injury.

Toye will appear at the Old Bailey before Mr Justice Spencer for a plea and case management hearing from noon on Friday.
