King’s Lynn dad jailed for 7 years for killing his baby girl

A King’s Lynn dad has been jailed for seven years for killing his baby girl.

Arunas Guzas was sentenced today (20th Dec) after a two-week trial where he denied manslaughter.

His daughter Milana was just six months old when she was brought into the QE with severe head injuries.

It was so bad – she had to be taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

But despite doctor’s best efforts – Milana passed away on 2nd March.

She’d suffered brain, retinal, rib and arm injuries and the court heard that it had just been 42-year-old Arunas who was looking after her at the time.

When he was questioned by the police – he told officers that he was falling in and out of sleep after being on night shifts.

He woke up to find Milana crying saying is was on the floor after falling from the bed.

Guzas admitted he’d shaken her gently and when she began to struggle to breath – he tried CPR.
