Jack McLaren: No defence offered in baby-shake case
No defence is being offered in the case of a father accused of murdering his baby.
Daniel McLaren, 30, denies murdering his son Jack but had admitted manslaughter.
Reading Crown Court heard the four-month-old died on 4 June 2017 as a result of a "forcible shake".
Defence barrister, John Price QC, said: "The position is that Mr McLaren will not be giving evidence and I will be calling no evidence on his behalf."
Mr McLaren of Newbury also denies a charge of GBH with intent on another child on 2 June 2017.
The prosecution has finished its case and the judge is expected to sum up on Friday.
