Dad changes plea to guilty in death of son

A Calgary father charged with manslaughter in the death of his two-month-old son has changed his plea to guilty.

CALGARY — A Calgary father charged with manslaughter in the death of his two-month-old son has changed his plea to guilty.

Bryson Dorey-Fox was taken to Alberta’s Children’s Hospital in August 2009 and died two days later.

Jamie Dorey, the baby’s father, was the only person home at the time of the incident and was charged with manslaughter.

In a 2009 interview with police, Dorey acted out what happened that day and claimed that the family dog must have knocked the baby off the couch.

An agreed statement of facts says Dorey admits the baby’s head struck a sharp corner of an object in the home.

Dorey has been released and will return to court for sentencing in January.
