A jury hearing the trial of a King’s Lynn father accused of killing his six-month-old daughter has been sent home for the night after failing to reach a verdict.
The jury at Norwich Crown Court were out for about five hours considering their verdict and are due to return on Tuesday.
Officers were called to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, after Milana Guzas was admitted with suspected head injuries on February 26.
She was transferred to Addenbrookes’s Hospital, in Cambridge, where she died on March 2 last year, after her life support equipment was turned off when she could not be revived.
Arunas Guzas, 42, of Greenland Avenue, King’s Lynn, has denied manslaughter and claimed the child got her injuries accidentally when she fell onto the floor after he went to sleep with her on his chest.
