Father found guilty of murdering baby son
A former Bodmin man has been found guilty of murdering his 11-month-old son. Judge Mr Justice Hamblen at Truro Crown Court accepted a majority verdict in the case of Shane Hawkins, formerly of the Kinsman Estate.
Hawkins, described as a "physically abusive father", denied the 2010 death of his son Kaydon, who had suffered retinal haemorrhaging in both eyes consistent with being shaken violently.
Hawkins, now of Warwickshire, is to be sentenced today.
