Baby P death convict Jason Owen returned to prison

Jason Owen, who was sentenced to six years in prison for his part in the death of 'Baby P', Peter Connelly, has been returned to prison after reportedly breaching his bail conditions.

Owen, from Bromley, south-east London, was imprisoned for 'causing or allowing' the death of 17-month-old Peter, who died in 2007.

Owen's brother Steven Barker and Peter's mother Tracey Connelly were also jailed following the tragic toddler's death.

Peter had been found dead in his blood-stained cot having endured more that 50 injuries. He was on the at-risk register and had been seen 60 times by social workers, police and health professionals over eight months before he died.

The BBC reports that Owen was released on parole in August, 2011 halfway through his sentence.

It says that the Ministry of Justice has not released the reason behind his recall, but quotes a spokesperson as saying 'offenders released on licence are subject to a strict set of conditions and controls. If they fail to comply with their licence conditions, they are liable to be returned to custody'.
