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.”
