Traherne Williams – UK database – Broxburn, West Lothian.

A father who killed his three-month-old daughter when she would not stop crying has been jailed for six-and-a-half years.

Traherne Williams violently shook baby Sophia and threw her onto a couch while she was crying on May 30 2016

The infant suffered ‘serious brain injuries’ in the incident in Broxburn, West Lothian.

Paramedics attended and she was taken to St John’s Hospital where the tiny baby never recovered and died a few days later on June 5.

A judge heard how Williams had become “absolutely frustrated” that she would not take her feed.

At the High Court in Glasgow, Lord Matthews told him: “You became frustrated and threw the defenceless child – your own flesh and blood – onto a sofa.

“This was before she had any chance to engage in the gift of life.”

Williams later lied to a doctor and said Sophia had fallen at a family centre they had been staying at.

Williams, 23, pleaded guilty to culpable homicide at the High Court in Glasgow on May 4.

He was sentenced to six years and six months at the same court on Tuesday.

Williams smiled at his 20 year-old partner Shannon Main as he was handcuffed and taken to the cells.

The pair originally faced a murder allegation.

Williams instead admitted to the reduced charge while Main’s not guilty plea was accepted.

A hearing last month was told she is still standing by the man who killed their child.

In his sentencing statement, published online by the Judiciary of Scotland, judge Lord Matthews said: “Parenthood is an enormous privilege but it carries with it enormous responsibilities of nurturing, care and protection.

“As a child grows older the nature of the responsibilities will change but any sane person who is old enough to be a parent knows that a babe in arms is a delicate creature who requires to be handled with the greatest of care and patience.

“Instead of displaying these qualities when she cried, you became frustrated through a combination of circumstances and threw this defenceless child, your own flesh and blood, onto a sofa and in so doing you brought about the catastrophic chain of events which led to her death before she had had any real chance of enjoying the gift of life which you had helped to give her.

He is one of six men charged with being members of the banned group.
A 22-year-old man, from Lancashire, who cannot be named, has also been charged with the intention of committing acts of terrorism and “threats to kill”.
All six are to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday.
National Action became the first far-right organisation to be banned in the UK in December 2016.

Jack Renshaw, a member of the British neo-Nazi group.

It means that being a member of or inviting support for the organisation is a criminal offence carrying a sentence of up to 10 years’ imprisonment.

Ms Cooper said: “I would like to thank everyone involved in this case, especially the counter-terrorism police, for keeping me, my staff and the public safe.
“There remains an ongoing criminal investigation so it would not be appropriate for me to comment further.”
Who are National Action?

By Dominic Casciani, BBC home affairs correspondent
National Action became the first British neo-Nazi group to be banned last December after Home Secretary Amber Rudd said it was promoting violence and acts of terrorism.
Members and supporters applauded the murder of Jo Cox MP by a white supremacist – and the group had carried out a series of small, but confrontational, demonstrations in towns and cities throughout England.
One of its most notorious events saw masked members – many of them very young men – gathering outside York Minster to make Hitler salutes.
Since it was banned, detectives have been carrying out more and more investigations into the group which, to all intents and purposes, has organised itself in a similar way to the banned al Muhajiroun network – the extremist Islamist youth movement.
Both have used social media to target young people, attracting them with a simplistic us-and-them message designed to make them angry.
The charges follow a number of raids across England and Wales by counter-terrorism officers as part of a national investigation into the group.
The others charged with belonging to a proscribed organisation are:
Garron Helm, 24, of Seaforth, Merseyside
Matthew Hankinson, 23, of Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside
Andrew Clarke, 33, of Warrington
Michael Trubini, 35, of Warrington
A spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Police said the men were charged following “co-ordinated activity” by police.
