芬利-博登。聖誕嬰兒謀殺案審判中顯示的短信

被指控謀殺其幼子的父母手機中的一條短信,說 "我想把他從牆上彈下來",已在法庭上展示。

德比刑事法院的審判被告知,這對夫婦在焚燒和毆打兒子 "多次實施嚴重暴力行為 "後,共同實施了聖誕節謀殺,並且--直到今天--仍然 "在一起"。

在審判的第二天,法庭看到了這對夫婦共用手機發出的短信--陪審員被告知每條短信的作者並不總是清楚。

在一條於格林尼治標準時間2020年12月23日12:39從該手機發給一個保存為 "Smokey J "的聯繫人的信息中,作者說 "小傢伙 "讓我 "整晚沒睡"。

我需要他在你的'。

控方大律師薩利-霍布森說,在他被送回之前,用那部手機在互聯網上搜索了幾篇與父母參與的兒童死亡有關的新聞。

在芬利被送回夫婦倆照顧的那天,也進行了類似的互聯網搜索--12月7日又進行了搜索。

這部手機還被用來搜索 "有沒有人知道那裡有一個婦女庇護所 "和 "緊急住房,媽媽和孩子,切斯特菲爾德",法庭聽到了。

檢察官告訴陪審團,瑪斯登小姐發送了短信,要求一個親戚 "請在星期五之前生下孩子,請找一個藉口或其他什麼"。

"我需要他在你那裡,這樣我就可以做我需要做的事情,"短信中說。

12月21日,在芬利死亡前幾天,據說馬斯登小姐給另一個親戚發了短信說。"讓警察到我這裡來,告訴他們我很害怕斯蒂芬在孩子身邊。

住在切斯特菲爾德Barrow Hill的Romford Way的Boden先生和沒有固定地址的Marsden小姐否認謀殺,否認兩項虐待兒童的指控,以及兩項造成或允許兒童死亡的指控。


A text from the phone of parents accused of the murder of their baby son, saying "I want to bounce him off the walls" has been shown in court.

The trial at Derby Crown Court has been told the pair jointly carried out the Christmas Day murder, after burning and beating him "in repeated acts of severe violence", and - to this day - remained "in it together".

On the second day of the trial, the court was shown text messages sent from the couple's shared mobile phone - with jurors told the author of each SMS was not always clear.

In one message from that handset to a contact saved as "Smokey J" at 12:39 GMT on 23 December 2020, the author said the "little one" had "kept me up all night".

'I need him at yours'

Prosecution barrister Sally Hobson said that before he was returned, internet searches were made on that phone for several news articles relating to parent-involved child deaths.

On the day Finley was returned to the couple's care, similar internet searches were carried out - and again on 7 December.

The phone was also used to search "does anyone know it there's a women's refuge" and "emergency housing, mum and kids, Chesterfield", the court heard.

Prosecutors told the jury that texts were sent by Miss Marsden asking for a relative to "please have the baby before Friday, make an excuse or something, please".

"I need him at yours, so I can do what I need to," the text said.

On 21 December, days before Finley's fatal collapse, Miss Marsden is said to have messaged another relative saying: "Get the police to mine, tell them I'm scared of Stephen around the baby.

Mr Boden, of Romford Way in Barrow Hill, Chesterfield, and Miss Marsden, of no fixed address, deny murder, two counts of child cruelty, and two charges of causing or allowing the death of a child.
