Father from London, Ont., charged with manslaughter in baby’s death


LONDON, Ont. — Police have charged a father with manslaughter in connection with the death of his three-month-old child in London, Ont.

The baby, whose gender wasn’t given, died in hospital on March 19, 2019.

London police say the baby’s father was charged on Monday.

They didn’t release that name of the man to protect his child’s identity.

The accused is due in court on April 7.
