A drug dealer has today been found guilty of brutally murdering his two-year-old son in Northampton.
Raphael Kennedy, of Arthur Street, Northampton, was convicted at the end of a three-week trial at Northampton Crown Court.
The jury of seven women and five men returned their unanimous verdict in just over six hours.
His son Dylan Tiffin-Brown died after being assaulted by his father on December 15, last year.
Dylan suffered multiple lacerations to his liver, substantial bleeding to his abdomen and multiple rib fractures in a sustained assault.
Blood tests also showed the two-year-old had extremely high levels of Class A drugs in his system, which Kennedy admitted being responsible for.
In a statement, Dylan's mum described him as the "most perfect little boy you could ever meet".
During cross examination, Kennedy admitted that his main income came from selling heroin and crack cocaine.
The court heard how he had previously been convicted for GBH after breaking the jaw of an ex-partner.
