Man charged with murder of Dylan, 3

A 21-year-old man has been charged with the murder of a three-year-old boy.

Dylan Crean was found with life-threatening injuries at a property in Albert Village, Swadlincote, on the Derbyshire-Leicestershire border, on Tuesday afternoon.

He was taken to Derby Royal Infirmary and later moved to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham where, despite the efforts of medical teams, he died on Wednesday afternoon, Leicestershire Police said.

The man, named in reports as Gavin Cawser, the partner of Dylan's mother, was charged with murder and two counts of actual bodily harm. He will appear at Loughborough Magistrates' Court on Saturday.

No details about the cause of the youngster's death have yet been released.

Nearly 6,000 people have joined an online group to pay their respects to Dylan, including one who signed the message "daddy".
