The father of a six-week-old baby who died from a head injury has received a suspended jail sentence.

Mohammed Ismail Malik died in hospital last January after paramedics were called to his family home in Bolton, Greater Manchester.

Shakeel Hussain, 25, of Balcary Grove, admitted unlawfully killing his son to Manchester Crown Court in January.

A charge against wife Rabeel Malik, 23, of causing or allowing the death of a child was previously dismissed.

Hussain, who had denied murder, received a 16 months sentence suspended for two years and was also given an 18 months supervision order.
