Man convicted of killing Worthing baby
A man has this afternoon been convicted of killing a baby.
Jermone Edwards, who will turn 28 tomorrow, was today at Lewes Crown Court, convicted of the manslaughter of 11-month-old Crystal Hall-Hummel.
He was cleared of her murder.
Baby Crystal died in hospital after being shaken at Edwards’ flat in Nursery Lane, Worthing, in spring last year.
Her heartbroken mother Georgina Hummel, 18, of Worthing, spoke to The Argus outside court.
She said: “It is very difficult to explain how I feel. A mixture of emotions - anger, pain, sorrow, guilt.
“My life and my family's has been torn apart.”
Edwards, previously of Worthing, gave his address as of Bridgefield Close, Midhurst.
He has been jailed for eight years.
