A father who killed his seven-week-old son has been jailed for 12 years.

Brian Penn was convicted following a trial of inflicting blunt force trauma on Kaleb Penn’s head and body and compressing his body in 2017.

The baby was so left severely injured in the attack at a property in Ayr, Scotland, that he died two days later at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.

The 30-year-old was also found guilty of assaulting his son to severe injury and to the danger of his life on various occasions between 13 and 31 October in the same year.

The former soldier had lodged a defence of incrimination, blaming the child’s mother for Kaleb’s death.

He was sentenced to 12 years behind bars when he appeared at the High Court in Glasgow on Wednesday, appearing by video link from prison.
