Trial for Collier Row dad accused of murdering baby son

A Collier Row dad accused of murdering his 14 month-old son will stand trial at the Old Bailey in July.

Nathan Allen, 26, is said to have killed Fletcher Allen at the family home in Erith Crescent.

The boy was taken to hospital on the morning of January 6 and died at around 2pm the same day.

A postmortem examination later found the cause of death to be blunt trauma injury to the abdomen.

Allen appeared at the Old Bailey on Monday to deny the murder charge.

The trial is set for July 11.

Allen was remanded in custody.
