Father who killed baby gets life

A father who murdered his seven-week-old son in a fit of temper was jailed for life at the Old Bailey.

The boy was hit so hard by Dominic Fulcher, 25, of Reigate, Surrey, that he was blinded, permanently deafened and brain-damaged. He never regained consciousness and died 11 months later.
