An 18-year-old mother wept away in front of officials as she admitted to the brutal killing of her 20-month-old daughter recently.
According to media reports, the young child starved to death as her mum chose nights of celebrations and partying to ring in her 18th birthday, while her little daughter stayed home alone in Brighton.
The mum admitted to authorities how she left her innocent baby at home alone for six days, just so she could celebrate her 18th birthday in London as well as the Midlands.
Authorities identified the mum as Verphy Kudi while the daughter was named Asiah Kudi. She died at her residence in December 2019.
Meanwhile, local media outlets showed CCTV footage that depicts the mother leaving her apartment on the day of her birthday, and then returning around 6 days later.
Today, the mum spoke to news outlets only to confirm her name while entering into a guilty manslaughter plea too. Reports also spoke about how the child was under the kid’s protection plan, but there was no social or care worker assigned at that moment.
The mother explained how she went miles away, leaving her baby alone for days without any sources of food or water. Therefore, her post-mortem examination results, as well as forensic test results, revealed the obvious. Little Asiah died from starvation, dehydration, and neglect. In addition, she had also developed the flu too.
The shameful mum entered the courtroom today as her father watched on. Speaking at the hearing, the 59-year-old father explained how his daughter went missing at the age of 14. He also stated how heartbroken he was to find out this news.
Right after returning from her 6-day partying spree, Kudi opted to call up 999 rescue officials and reported how her baby would just not wake up. And that was when paramedics rushed to the scene and took her baby to the nearby Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, located in Brighton. However, she was declared dead on arrival.
