Mum found guilty of killing 10-week-old baby

A woman has been convicted of the infanticide of her 10-week old daughter.

Lauren Saint George was found guilty at the Old Bailey after little Lily-Mai was discharged into her parents’ care despite healthcare professionals arguing against it.

The jury of seven men and four women cleared Saint George of murder, manslaughter and cruelty to a person under 16.

Her partner Darren Hurrell, also 25, was cleared of cruelty by neglect.

Six days after the child was discharged, Saint George inflicted traumatic head injuries and 18 rib fractures on the baby Lily Mai, the court heard.
