Nathan Pick admits son's manslaughter in Derby

Houses in Waterford Drive, Chaddesden Police and paramedics were called to the family home in Waterford Drive on 8 May last year

A father has admitted the manslaughter of his seven-month-old son in Derby a year ago.

Nathan Pick, 38, was originally charged with murdering James-Lee Riley Pick but offered to plead guilty to manslaughter.

The Crown Prosecution Service said the lesser charge was accepted after consultation with the child's mother.

Pick, of Waterford Drive, Chaddesden, will be sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday.

The boy was taken to the Royal Derby Hospital on 8 May last year after police and paramedics were called to the family home in Waterford Drive.

He was later transferred to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham, where he died.
