Brutal child murderer on early release

A killer jailed for life for kicking a toddler to death, is working days and weekends in the community as he prepares for his release from prison. Baird (35), described by Lord Justice Murray as a "thug and lout of the worst kind", was jailed for life in 1992 for murdering Phillip Carton, who died from massive internal injuries. The courtroom heard that Baird hit and kicked the boy in the stomach before grabbing him with both arms, lifting him off the ground, kicking him and dropping him on the ground.

He is on an early release program - enjoying day release for a work placement each week day and on a Friday evening he is granted temporary weekend release, returning to prison on Monday.
