Jonas Hankin QC and Antonie Muller prosecuted the parents of 13-month-old Kian Dale for manslaughter by gross negligence. Kian drowned in a bath after being left unsupervised by parents Wayne Dale and Lisa Passey, who have been sentenced to spend four-and-a-half years and four years in jail.
During the two-week trial, the court heard how Dale and Passey left baby Kian unsupervised in a bath upstairs whilst Dale was ‘using his computer’ and ‘socialising’ and Passey was drinking coffee and smoking.
