A Bodmin dad has been found guilty of murdering his baby son.

Truro Crown Court heard Shane Hawkins violently shook the ten month old tot, then threw him down.

The jury was told the 25 year old changed his story about what happened in December 2010 at least six times.

In one version little Kaydon started vomiting, while in another he slipped and knocked his head on a storage heater.

Hawkins, who now lives in Warwickshire, grinned at reporters when he first arrived at court.

But he ended up sobbing in the dock as he heard the case against him.

Later he will be sentenced for the murder of his defenceless baby boy.

Senior Investigating Officer, DI Jackie Swift commented: “This was a violent act committed against a defenceless baby who sustained fatal head injuries at the hands of the person who was there to care for him.

“In the subsequent investigation, Kayden was also found to have suffered other injuries during his short life inflicted by his father.

“This was a complex and protracted investigation which was handled sensitively by officers from our Child Abuse Investigation Teams, supported by the Major Crime Team.

“We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the medical experts who provided us with the evidence we needed to help secure Hawkins’ conviction.”

Hawkins has been jailed for life and will serve at least 14 years.
