Mother, 19, Who Left Her 20-Month-old Daughter To Starve To Death While She Spent Six Days Celebrating Her 18th Birthday

A teenage mother whose 20-month-old daughter starved to death while she was out partying had left the toddler alone 11 times before, it emerged last night.

Verphy Kudi's child Asiah perished in the supported housing block in Brighton after being abandoned for six days with no food or water in December 2019.

Kudi, 19, had been celebrating her 18th birthday on benders in London, Coventry and Solihull - 150 miles away - and last month pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

It has now been revealed the young mother had left Asiah unsupervised 11 times in the weeks from mid-October 2019 to the toddler's tragic death.
