MADRID — A British father who was accused of killing his three-month-old son in Spain has had the case against him dropped.
 
Paul Lees, 40, of Manchester, who has always protested his innocence, spent more than a year in a Spanish jail without a trial, the BBC reported.

The original autopsy suggested two baby wipes were lodged in the throat of his son, Sami.

But further forensic evidence has cast doubt over that claim. It is believed the baby died from natural causes.

Lees was released from prison last year.

His legal team has been told the case has been dropped and is now waiting for written confirmation.
