Thug jailed for battering baby
A 21-year-old man who battered a 13-month old baby leaving him with a fractured skull has been jailed for five years.
Stefan Michael James, of Romney House, Blewburton Walk, Bracknell, inflicted "numerous" head injuries on the infant when its crying disturbed him, a court heard.
