Jury told of 'inescapable evidence' over baby death

A JURY yesterday was told there was "inescapable evidence" that baby Abbie Jamieson was killed by her father.

Craig Jamieson, 30, denies murdering Abbie at the family home in Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, on 8 February, 2008. He blames the baby's mother, Nichola Haddock.

Yesterday at the High Court in Glasgow, prosecution QC Lesley Shand said: "This was a vicious attack on a small, defenceless four-month-old baby."

She told the jury that the Crown position is that Abbie was uninjured when Ms Haddock, 29, left for university after 7am, adding: "The inescapable evidence is that these injuries were inflicted by Craig Jamieson."

Craig Jamieson's defence QC Ronnie Watson told the jury that his client was innocent.

He said: "There are only two people who could have struck Abbie Jamieson, Nichola Haddock or Craig Jamieson. Before you convict Craig Jamieson you have to be terribly convinced of his guilt and Nichola Haddock's innocence."

Temporary judge Alastair Stewart QC will give directions to the jury today before asking them to retire to consider their verdict.
