Telford couple deny murdering baby son Oliver Sargent

A former nursery nurse and her husband have denied murdering their baby son.

Eleven-month-old Oliver Sargent, from Telford, was taken to hospital with head injuries in July 2012 and died four days later.

Ashlea Thomas, formerly Sargent, 19, and Paul Thomas, 28, denied murder, child cruelty and causing or allowing the death of a child.

The couple, of Dalford Court, Hollinswood, are due to stand trial at Birmingham Crown Court on 4 June.

They were released on bail following a brief hearing at the court.
