Baby allegedly Murdered by Parents 6 days After being Discharged from Hospital, Court Hears

Baby allegedly Murdered by Parents 6 days After being Discharged from Hospital, Court Hears

 A 10-week-old baby girl was reportedly murdered by her parents just 6 days after being discharged from the hospital.

According to reports, the family were visited by a social worker just hours before the baby sustained injuries that eventually resulted in her death.Lily-Mai suffered 18 rib fractures, a leg fracture, and a fatal head injury allegedly caused by forceful shaking by allegedly both the Lauren Saint George and Darren Hurrell, aged 25.

Lily-Mae was taken to North Middlesex Hospital whilst initially suffering from the injuries.

It was expected the injuries had been sustained by physical abuse after a 999 call was made on 31 January 2018, a jury was told.

Despite being taken to hospital, Lily-Mai died two days later on 2 February after being transferred to Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The two defendants are on trial at Wood Green Crown Court where they are denying the charges of murder, manslaughter, causing or allowing a death and child cruelty.

Prosecutor Sally O'Neill QC told the jury on Tuesday: "It is the Crown's case that these two defendants, Lily-Mai's parents, were responsible for her death and that these fatal injuries were caused to Lily-Mai by forceful shaking shortly before that 999 call only six days after she had been discharged into their care."

Although a social worker was assigned to the case after concerns were raised over the parents' ability to care for Lily-Mai, the decision was made to discharge the baby to the parents.

Many hospital staff reportedly voiced concerns of the mother's temper and lack of bond with the child.The prosecutor continued, "Almost all of the professionals at the hospital were opposed to the baby being discharged into the parents' care at home and had expressed their concern about the parents' ability to meet the baby's emotional, developmental and physical needs on many occasions to the social services, but nonetheless, the decision was made to discharge the baby into the care of her parents and the hospital had to accept that and deal with the situation as best they could."The trial is expected to last up to five weeks.
