Mum and ex-partner found guilty of causing or allowing death of newborn baby

A mum and her ex-partner have been found guilty of causing or allowing the death of a three-week-old baby.

Roxanne Davis, 30, and Samuel Davies, 24, were convicted over the death of Stanley Davis following a five-week trial at Winchester Crown Court.

The newborn child suffered a broken skull, brain haemorrhage and 41 fractures.

He died in hospital on March 28, one week after being taken from the couple’s home in Gosport, Hampshire.

Davis, of Gosport, and her former partner Samuel Davies, of Southampton, tested positive for cocaine and cannabis after the young child fell ill.

During her trial, Davis denied being a "coke head" but admitted having "a few lines" after her son’s birth.

Davies was Davis’ partner at the time but not the baby’s father, prosecutors said.
