9 July 2013 Last updated at 17:45 BST

A man accused of starving and murdering his four-year-old step son has told jurors how the boy's mother would withhold food as a punishment.

Daniel Pelka died from a head injury in March last year.

His mother Magdelena Luczak, 27, and her partner, Mariusz Krezolek, 34, from Coventry, deny murdering him.

Ben Ando reports.
