Sally Howes QC leads Josh Happé in trial of Father prosecuted and jailed for killing 14-week-old daughter

Christopher Easey denied murdering baby Eleanor in December 2019, claiming that he had dropped her on her head having been distracted by barking dogs.  Following a 3 month trial before Mr Justice Murray, Easey was convicted of manslaughter and neglect after a jury heard that Eleanor had a brain injury and 31 rib fractures.  Eleanor had also been left alone on occasions by both her parents, who had also fed her biscuits.  Easey, 31, was jailed for 14 years.  The baby’s mother, Carly Easey, was sentenced to a 12-month community order for neglect.
