FACTFILE

 

Craig Jamieson, aged 30, killed his daughter Abbie at the home he shared with her mother Nichola Haddock in Dumbarton Road, Glasgow.

 

8th February 2008,  Ms Haddock, a student, went off to her studies at Glasgow's Caledonian University, leaving 4-month-old baby Abbie with father Craig Jamieson. After a phone call from Jamieson saying Abbie was unwell she rushed home.

She arrived home to find Abbie "very pale" and "staring into space" in her chair. An ambulance was called.

 

4-month-old Abbie Jamieson died at Yorkhill Hospital Glasgow.Jamieson inflicted blunt force trauma to her head and body leaving the girl so severely injured that the injuries killed her.

 

April 2010, at the High court in Glasgow, forensic experts said the babies injuries were caused by her being hit off a hard surface like a wall or a worktop.

The jury took just under four hours to convict Jamieson of Abbie's murder.

He was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum period of 16 years.

 

16th February 2011,  his conviction was overturned by the Appeal Court on the grounds that the trial judge had misdirected the jury in the case. Jamieson was ordered to face trial again and was granted bail.

 

Tuesday 14th February 2012, Craig Jamieson is sentenced to 15 years and a month in prison after being found guilty of fatally injuring daughter Abbie at his then home in Glasgow.
