A teen mother has been grabbed by the police after she left her toddler home to starve to death just to travel and celebrate her 18th birthday with friends.
The teen mother identified as Verphy Kudi reportedly abandoned her 20-month-old baby called Asiah in her flat in Brighton, England for six days while she traveled out of town to London and Coventry to party with friends and family.
According to reports, she left her flat on December 7 to attend a 1990s music concert in Elephant and Castle, South London. On December 9th, she left home to attended another party in Coventry then went back to London before finally returning home on the 11th of December.
However, upon arrival, she met her daughter Asiah dead. Reports say the toddler died of influencer and starvation after being left unattended. The teen mother called paramedics after seeing the lifeless body of her daughter. Upon reaching Brighton’s Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, she was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Verphy was charged to court and pleaded guilty to manslaughter and has been sentenced at Lewes Crown Court, August 6th.
Sentencing Kudi, Judge Christine Laing QC said: “Asiah was alone in that flat for six days unable to do anything to draw attention to her plight.
“It is almost unbearable to contemplate her suffering in the final days of her life, suffering that she endured so that you could celebrate your birthday and the birthdays of your friends as a carefree teenager.
Judge Laing added: “It goes without saying that this is a particularly tragic case and it no doubt raises strong emotions in all who hear of it, but everyone should bear in mind that the charge I sentence you for is one of manslaughter, it being accepted that you did not intend to cause Asiah death nor to cause her really serious harm.”
