Alfie Sullock: Michael Pearce 'can't explain' injuries

A man accused of beating a baby to death has told a court he does not know how the six-week-old suffered brain damage and bruising to his body.

The injuries to Alfie Sullock were said to have happened in the two hours Michael Pearce was babysitting on 16 August last year in Cardiff.

But the defendant told Newport Crown Court he did not do anything to hurt the baby.

Mr Pearce, 32, of Nelson, Caerphilly county, denies murder and manslaughter.

Jordan Davies reports.
