Man who killed baby son named

A Greymouth man who killed his 15-month-old son can now be named.

Dane Blake (32) killed his 15-month-old son Leith Hutchinson in in 2015, when he wouldn't stop crying.

During sentencing in March Blake's lawyer Marcus Zintl told the court Blake was overwhelmed and ill-equipped to deal with a crying child who would not settle.

Blake, who was sentenced to five years and six months for the manslaughter of his son, had six months added to his sentence for three separate drug charges today.
