A Burntwood couple have been found guilty of child cruelty and causing or allowing the death of their two-month-old son.
Stafford Crown Court how an ambulance was called to the former home of Luke Morgan, 26, and Emma Cole, 22, in Sunnymead Road on 29th April 2014.
Their son Tyler was taken to Walsall Manor Hospital where he was pronounced dead, with his cause of death recorded as ‘unascertained’.
But jurors heard that he had suffered injuries prior to his death.
Detective Chief Inspector Victoria Downing, of Staffordshire Police, said the case was “tragic and distressing”.
She added: “Our first thoughts are with Tyler, who was barely two-months-old when he lost his life, and his extended family.
“This has been a difficult and distressing case to bring before the courts and we are grateful to those who have provided evidence to allow the jury to reach this decision.”
Morgan and Cole – who were found not guilty of murder and manslaughter – will be sentenced at Stafford Crown Court on 21st June.
