Timothy Andrew Whiteley found guilty of murdering toddler in Newcastle

A New South Wales chicken chaser has been found guilty of murdering a 20-month-old toddler.

A Newcastle Supreme Court jury on Friday rejected Timothy Andrew Whiteley’s claims he never touched the child.

Whiteley, 28, who had been in a relationship with the toddler’s mother, told police he initially believed the girl had fallen out of bed and hit her head.

The toddler, weighing 11kg and standing 84cm tall, died from multiple injuries, including bleeding to the brain, broken ribs, a collapsed lung, lacerations to her liver and bleeding in her abdominal cavity.
