Social workers should have spotted mother posed danger to murdered Ayeeshia-Jayne Smith, report finds

Post by Guest on Tue Sep 05, 2017 1:26 pm

Social workers failed to realise a mother who stamped her daughter to death posed a danger to the toddler because they were too concerned about her being a victim of domestic violence, a report has found. Ayeeshia-Jayne Smith was murdered by her mother Kathryn Smith in May 2014 during a "savage outburst" in the girl's bedroom. Smith was jailed for at least 24 years in April last year, later reduced to 19 years.

Her then partner, Matthew Rigby, 22, was jailed for three years and six months after being found guilty of causing or allowing Ayeeshia's death. Now a serious case review by the Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Board says professionals should have been more "inquisitive".
