A FORMER nursery nurse has been jailed after admitting shaking her seven-month-old son, leaving him blind and severely brain-damaged.
Jack Weaver, who is now two-and-a-half years old, spent almost five months in hospital after suffering severe head injuries when his mother had "a momentary loss of control."
Andrea Weaver is today starting a two-year sentence after pleading guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm.
Yesterday, Chester Crown Court heard that the 38-year-old shook Jack, who has a twin sister Imogen and six-year-old sister Megan, so hard he turned pale, became limp and lifeless and made a "growling" noise.
The mother-of-three, from Barony Road, Nantwich, called 999 at about 10.20am on January 16, 2009 when she noticed the tot was struggling to breathe and when paramedics arrived told them she had no idea what caused the injuries.
