Baby 'bus death' couple facing years in jail

Baby 'bus death' couple facing years in jail

During trial, Baker blamed her drug addict partner Jeffrey Wiltshire, 52, for tortured of her daughter, who is always been high on heroine and cocaine.

A post-mortem revealed that Imani had a fractured skull, a fractured right wrist, and multiple broken ribs consistent with non-accidental injury.

The maximum sentence for causing or allowing the death of a child is 14 years.

Rosalin Baker, 25, took her 16-week-old daughter Imani to a local shop to top up her Oyster card before boarding the number 25 bus in Stratford, east London. Another passenger called police and paramedics and a second woman attempted CPR.

The court heard that while other passengers became deeply distressed when they realised the child had died, Baker remained impassive for the entire time others tried in vain to revive Imani.

One of the co-passenger who raced to help found Imani had already stopped breathing and her face was "ice cold".

Wiltshire, who said in a police interview that he had fathered 23 children, initially denied Imani was his while Baker told officers she was in a "total state of shock".

In the week of her death, Imani was attacked three times and suffered 40 rib fractures, a broken wrist and bad head injuries, jurors were told.

The couple were charged with murder shortly afterwards, which they denied.

She said her partner - who has reportedly fathered 25 children to 18 different women - was trying to "frame" her by forcing her on the bus with the dead child.

Roared on by their raucous away support, Anderlecht gave United several scares before finally succumbing in the 107th minute. Both were substituted with knee injuries during United's Europa League extra-time win over Anderlecht yesterday.

Giving evidence, she said when she found her daughter dead at the bottom of their bed, Wiltshire had told her "it's all your fault, I told you to give her up for adoption".

Medical professionals noticed that Imani had been dead for so long by the time she had been taken to hospital that the onset of Rigor Mortis had begun.

Detective Chief Inspector Gary Holmes, of Scotland Yard, said: "The loss of any child is tragic but to know that baby Imani was tortured and was probably in considerable pain in her last few hours is heart-rending". Despite a challenging start to life she fought to survive but sadly her fight was short-lived as she suffered at the hands of the very people who were supposed to love, nurture and protect her.

"Baker and Wiltshire orchestrated the most devious of plans in an attempt to cover up the abuse that had been inflicted upon their daughter".

Moments later, Baker was joined by Wiltshire, who helped her onto a number 25 bus heading towards Bow Church. They were panicking and distressed.

"The first thing I thought was he's done something to her", she told the jury. Neither has shown any remorse for their actions and I am pleased with the convictions that have been handed down today. As the two parted ways Wiltshire gave Baker the thumbs up and it is this detectives believe was the signal to begin the ruse.

The incident took place on September 28 past year and the two will be sentenced on May 18.

They had already been brought to the attention of child welfare services.

"A serious case review is now underway, which involves a number of different organisations, and we anticipate it to be completed shortly".

An spokeswoman for the NSPCC said: "We hope the serious case review will provide much-needed answers about the circumstances surrounding the death of baby Imani". As her parents they should have kept their daughter safe from harm but instead they either caused or allowed her death which they then tried to hide.
