A father today denied killing his six-week-old baby son in their Camden home.
Pedro Rubim, 42, was charged with manslaughter after his child, Alejandro Rubim, died in a suspected case of baby shaking on February 24 last year.
The child died in the family home in Finchley Road.
Prosecutor Deanna Heer told the Old Bailey the baby’s brain had been injured.
Rubim, 42, of Lodge Drive in Southgate, appeared in the dock with an interpreter but answered “Not guilty” when the charge of manslaughter was put to him.
