Bail granted to father of infant

CALGARY — A Calgary judge has granted bail to a father accused of killing his eight-week-old infant son.

CALGARY — A Calgary judge has granted bail to a father accused of killing his eight-week-old infant son.

But provincial court Judge Catherine Skene says Jamie Allen Dorey won’t be released until at least Friday, so lawyers on the case can determine what conditions he will live under.

Skene has ruled Crown prosecutor Susan Pepper failed to meet the onus to have Dorey ordered detained.

Instead, she agrees with defence lawyer Charlie Stewart that his client doesn’t pose a risk to the community.

Dorey, 29, was charged with manslaughter in the Aug. 3 death of baby Bryson Dorey-Fox.

A family friend said the child was rushed to hospital by his mother, Carla Fox, two days earlier after she came home to find him in his bassinet, struggling to breath, his lips blue.

Police called his death a homicide, ruling out family claims the boy’s injuries were caused by their dog.

Carla Fox later suggested the hospital where he was taken was responsible for the child’s death.
