Gainford's Lee Clark denies manslaughter of baby son

A County Durham man has pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter of his baby son.

Lee Clark appeared at Newcastle Crown Court in connection with the death of Charlee Clark, who was five-months-old when he died in March 2011.

Medical staff alerted police because of concerns about the boy's head injuries. Charlee lived with his parents in Gainford, near Darlington.

A full trial is scheduled to start on 28 January at the same court.

Mr Clark's conditional bail was extended.
