Wayne Acott of Sunningdale Court, Square Hill Road, Maidstone was charged with the manslaughter of his son Mackenzie in January last year.
The court heard how Acott returned home in the early hours of the morning on Friday 21 January, after playing computer games at a neighbour’s flat, and fell asleep on the sofa.
His partner woke him a few hours later and asked him to feed Mackenzie whilst she dropped her daughter off at school.
When she returned and pulled into her parking bay Acott called her mobile in a panic, saying that Mackenzie had just collapsed and he didn’t know what to do.
At hospital doctors told the parents that the injuries to Mackenzie were usually associated with a high speed car accident.
A post mortem examination revealed that Mackenzie was subject to a significant traumatic event such as an impact or impacts to his head or a shaking injury.
Following an investigation by detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, Acott was charged with manslaughter on August 9 and pleaded not guilty on October 28.
