AN EAST KILBRIDE man has plead guilty to the culpable homicide of his five-month old baby.
David Sinclair appeared at Glasgow High Court on Wednesday, July 20.
The 34-year-old pled guilty to the culpable homicide of his five-month old baby Joshua within their home in East Kilbride in December 2012.
The Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Laura McLuckie, said: “David Sinclair admitted to being responsible for the death of his baby son, Joshua, who died needlessly at a young and vulnerable age.
“My sincere condolences go out to Joshua’s extended family, who have endured this harrowing incident and continue to live with the pain of Joshua’s untimely death.
“A defenceless baby died at the hands of his father, the one person whose role was to protect and care for him.
“Child abuse in any form is a deplorable crime. Police Scotland will thoroughly investigate any report we receive, regardless of when the crime occurred, to ensure those responsible are held to account for their actions.” Evening Standard
