Baby charge man goes free

Derren MacLennan walked free from the High Court in Edinburgh yesterday and later declined to comment.
The verdict followed a month-long trial in which MacLennan pleaded not guilty to a charge which alleged that on February 23, 2010, he seized the baby by the body and repeatedly shook her and struck her on the head against a solid surface.
