The young woman went out to party to celebrate her 18 years, but this lasted for a week. Then he went to a series of shows and forgot about Asiah, his baby who was 50 miles away.
The baby contracted the influenza virus and died of starvation after spending five days, 21 hours and 48 minutes without adult care.
Although this incident was reported at the end of 2019, it was until this year that the Lewes Crown Court ruled that Kudi was guilty of involuntary manslaughter.
Judge Laing, in charge of the case, mentioned that the baby had to face “almost unimaginable” suffering, that “she was a defenseless child and she completely trusted you as her mother to demonstrate her needs.”
She added that Kudi’s attitude was an abuse of trust and a selfish action in which she prioritized the celebration of her birthday over the well-being of her baby, while the prosecutor Sally Howes He said that the security cameras at the indicated address exposed the risk to which the baby was subjected.
