Oct 6, 2013 – Amanda Hutton Jailed For 15 Years: Alcoholic British Mom Who Starved Son To Death Convicted Of Manslaughter

An alcoholic British mother who let her 4-year-old son starve to death and left his body in a cot for almost two years was sentenced Friday to 15 years in jail.

Judge Roger Thomas said Amanda Hutton had failed “to fulfill the most basic responsibilities that you, as a mother, should have fulfilled.”

The mummified body of Hutton’s son, Hamzah Khan, was found by police at the family’s home in Bradford, northern England, in September 2011. He had died in December 2009.
The judge said the boy was wearing clothing made for a 6- to 9-month-old child.

“Although it beggars belief that such a thing can happen, it has, of course, happened here,” the judge said.

He told Hutton: “It has done so through your purposeful, persistent and gross conduct in failing in that most basic and fundamental requirement that is upon every parent, to feed her child adequately.”

Hutton was convicted of manslaughter Thursday at Bradford Crown Court.
The judge said the 43-year-old mother of eight had an alcohol problem and that “you placed your own selfish addiction to drink well before your responsibilities to your many children.”

The judge said Hamzah’s body was only discovered after a rookie police support officer visited the house following complaints from neighbors about dirty diapers being thrown into their yard. The officer became concerned that something was seriously wrong.

  1. Wow! D report is as surprisin as it is annoyin. Surprise dat a white lady can gv birth 2 as many as 5 children nt 2 talk of 9 lk an African woman.

    Annoyin bc if she knew she wont b able 2 tk care of d 9th child, y conceivin him in d 1st place? Bt in any case, I tink dat 15Yrs jail term is too much bc of d 8 children dat r alive.

    Odawise, no punishment wld hv bin said 2 b 2 much 4 her bt Who‘s goin 2 tk care of d children? Remeba, notin was said abt dia fada. Perhaps he‘s late or smth.

  2. What is their business if she starve her son to death, did the government give her food and she didn’t cook for the baby, when they even saw she is a drunkard while didn’t they take the baby from her, afterall is her own baby, she carry it for nine months by herself, were was the government when the baby was starving, how on earth can u jail sum1 for what belongs to her, she knows what to do to her baby afterall it belongs to her, that’s why I like naija ooo this rubbish can neva happen here, jail sum1 for her own baby for 15yrs, hmmmm that’s total rubbish
