Couple jailed after brutal attack on baby boy

He was just 24 days old and died as the result of a brutal attack at the hands of his mother and stepfather - the words of a judge as a couple were jailed for 10 years.

Stanley Davis from Gosport died from a fractured skull and brain haemorrhage. Roxanne Davis - and her former partner Sam Davies from Southampton - were convicted of 'causing or allowing the death of a child'.

Winchester Crown Court heard Stanley was violently shaken and could have been thrown across a room. He had suffered 32 fractures to his ribs and nine fractures to his limbs in his short life.

Our reporter Richard Slee has been following the distressing case.
