Recommended Posts

You guys must remember this case with the lil girl starved to death by her mum who is now in jail mad c*nt

Because if I had a youth and me and the baby mum were no longer together I would make sure I am in my childs life, how can he say all this

when he did not see his child often enough not to see she was starving

just saw this on the news, such a sad story pretty little girl as well. Am I the only one as well who wondered how the neighbour never clocked on or remotely thought something werent right; surely she musta seen that the children looked a little malnourished or the mother was a bit weird.

the girl was practically locked inside the house for 5 months, they took her out of school etc, so no-one on road would have been able to tell she was being starved to death

they said that when she died, they couldn't even calculate her body mass index because she was so frail

it's so sad

these type of mental health issues are real and rife in areas of social deprivation

there are so many mad individuals out there with children, you can see them depressed eyes in women in poor areas on a daily basis, u kno theres some sort of abuse goin on

its a truly f*cked up world for poor people, for the children that grow up an get out they are lucky

Birmingham couple jailed for starving Khyra Ishaq


The mother of a seven-year-old girl who starved to death at her Birmingham home has been sentenced to 15 years and her stepfather jailed indefinitely.

Angela Gordon, 35, was cleared last month of murdering Khyra Ishaq but admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

She will be jailed for seven-and-a-half years and spend the rest on licence.

Gordon's partner, Junaid Abuhamza, 31, also had a manslaughter plea accepted after a report about his mental health.

He must serve a minimum of seven-and-half years, the judge at Birmingham Crown Court said.

Khyra weighed 2st 9lb (16.5kg) when she was found severely emaciated at a house in Handsworth in 2008.

'Chilling cruelty'

She was taken to Birmingham Children's Hospital where she was declared dead.

Mr Justice Roderick Evans told the pair their behaviour was "chilling in its harshness and cruelty".

During the retrial, which was ordered after the first trial collapsed, jurors heard Khyra had been killed by an infection that been caused by months of deliberate starvation.

The court heard how the house was well-stocked with food, but this was kept locked away out of the reach of Khyra and five other children in the care of the defendants.

They were also starved, two of them suffering from dangerous malnutrition before they were rescued.

The pair earlier admitted five charges of child cruelty relating to those children.

The judge said the sentences were also given for those charges.

Birmingham's social services department has been criticised for not intervening in the case.

But Tony Howell, strategic director for Children and Young People in Birmingham, said they cannot guarantee every child's safety.

Gordon was told by the judge her cruelty was "horrific" and made worse because she was the young girl's mother.

"It is not right to say that these children suffered from neglect," the judge said.

"Neglect is an inadequate and inappropriate description of the way they were treated.

"Rather, they were subjected to a domestic regime of punishment which was chilling in its harshness and cruelty.

"A regime introduced by you, Abuhamza, as it had its origins in your own upbringing, but a regime to which you, Gordon, became a party."

He added that he was satisfied that when Abuhamza became well enough to realise what he had done, he "felt and expressed genuine remorse".

Gordon was told that she was a "caring mother" up until the end of 2007.

Mr Justice Roderick Evans said he accepted she had grieved for her daughter, Gordon had only "very recently" experienced genuine remorse after being in a state of denial.


Peter Wilson, Midlands Today Home Affairs correspondent

Junaid Abuhamza is suffering from schizophrenia and although he was fit to appear in court it was agreed by three psychiatrists that he will require lifelong support and monitoring.

It is also agreed he could suffer a relapse in the future which would mean he would pose a risk to the public.

It was because of this risk that an Indeterminate Sentence for Public Protection (IPP) was imposed.

This means the judge set a minimum tariff that he has to serve in prison.

But because of the IPP he will not be released until he is able to show he is fit and does not pose a threat to the community.

He will undergo classes and intensive supervision and it is likely doctors consulted during this trial will be approached to decide if he can be released in the future.
