Father charged over death of son, 6, from injuries sustained as a baby

A father has been charged with manslaughter after his six-year-old son died from head injuries he sustained as a baby.

Baylee Varley from Ormesby, Norfolk, died in March last year as a result of serious head injuries received in the alleged 2008 attack.

Kevin Craig Toye, 28, of St Nicholas Road, Great Yarmouth has been charged with manslaughter and the ill-treatment of the child, Norfolk Police said.

A woman in her 20s, who was also arrested in relation to the inquiry, is not facing any further action.

A pre-inquest review into Varley's death had heard that he had died from bronchopneumonia due to long-term complications from a head injury.

Toye has been bailed to appear before Great Yarmouth Magistrates' Court on 28 October.
