    Here is a story below of how a father killed his own child by shaking it

    “A father who shook his crying son like a rag doll,
    so hard that the baby died, was today jailed for life
    for murder. The jury at Truro Crown Court heard
    that Tony Allen, 28, suffered a sudden loss of
    control and vigorously shook his seven-week-old
    son Dominic. The child died in the Royal Cornwall
    Hospital, Truro, on April 21, 2001. An autopsy
    carried out the following day showed he had
    suffered a 3cm bruise to the back of his head and
    brain haemorrhaging. Martin Meeke QC,
    prosecuting, said the injuries were consistent with
    violent shaking. He said on the night of April 13,
    Allen had shaken his son to stop him crying. “He
    shook him like a rag doll so the child’s head flipped
    backwards and forwards as it was shaken,” he
    said. Mr Meeke said Allen shook his son for a
    second time on April 21, intending to cause the
    child serious injury. During the trial the jury heard
    that Allen was left to look after the child on the
    evening of April 13, 2001 while his girlfriend
    Sherrie, the child’s mother, spoke on the telephone
    in another room. When the telephone call ended
    around 20 minutes later Allen said the baby was
    having trouble breathing and had gone red.
    Dominic suffered a condition which caused him to
    be sick after eating. On the night of April 20 Allen
    stayed in the living room with his son. He later told
    police he had woken up at around 6am with
    Dominic lying on his chest and realised something
    was wrong. Paramedics were called to the house
    where they tried to resuscitate the baby, who at
    this stage was limp and lifeless. Dominic was
    taken to the Royal Cornwall Hospital where a brain
    scan revealed internal bleeding. By 10.15am on
    April 21 his heart had slowed. He was pronounced
    dead 15 minutes later.”
