A King’s Lynn father accused of killing his six-month-old daughter denied ever shaking her when interviewed by police, a jury heard.
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 it became clear she could not be revived.
Arunas Guzas, 40, of Greenland Avenue, King’s Lynn, has denied manslaughter.
In interviews which were read to the jury at Norwich Crown Court, Guzas was asked by an officer if he had ever shaken Milana to which he replied: ““I did not shake her. She has never been shaken. I see no reason to shake her.”
The trial continues.
