A 29-year-old man from Newbury has pleaded not guilty to the murder of his five-month-old son.
Daniel McLaren, of Fleetwood Close, appeared at Reading Crown Court via video link on Friday following the death of his son Jack on June 4 this year.
Jack died two days after the alleged attack in hospital, with the post-mortem examination leading to the death being treated as suspicious.
The trial is scheduled to begin at the same court on January 22.
A 28-year-old woman from Newbury who was arrested following Jack’s death was released shortly afterwards, with no further action.
