Hull Mum Spared Jail For Killing Baby

12 November 2013, 12:08

A young mum from Hull who admitted killing her baby daughter while she was suffereing from of ''fatigue and mental disorder'' caused by postnatal depression has been spared jail.

Natasha Sultan, 21, sobbed as she was sentenced today for infanticide following the death of six-week-old Amelia-Lilly, in October last year.

Judge Jeremy Richardson QC told her: ''You are an utterly broken woman who will have to live with this for the remainder of your life, whether it's short or long.''

The judge gave her a three year supervision order and added: ''If you should ever have any other children, the social services department will plainly be involved and it may be that you are not permitted to bring up any future child given what has happened.''

Hull Crown Court has heard how Amelia-Lilly was taken to hospital from her home in Welton Grove, Hull, on October 8 suffering from a head injury and later died.

Sultan eventually admitted inflicting the injury on her daughter and Judge Richardson said he accepted the balance of her mind had been disturbed at the time.

The defendant was due to go on trial for murder yesterday but the prosecution accepted her guilty plea to a charge of infanticide.
