Evil mum found guilty of stamping baby daughter to death as new pictures reveal toddler’s harrowing injuries

The “happy and smiley” toddler died in hospital in May 2014 after sustaining a tear to her heart following a huge blow to her chest

The evil mum of tragic toddler Ayeeshia Smith has been found guilty of murdering her after inflicting ‘car crash’ injuries by stamping on her chest.

Kathryn Smith, 23, was found guilty of murder and child cruelty having denied all charges against her at Birmingham Crown Court.

Her partner and Ayeeshia’s stepdad Matthew Rigby, 22, was found guilty causing or allowing the death of the 21-month-old girl.

But Rigby was cleared of murder and child cruelty.

The “happy and smiley” toddler died in hospital in May 2014 after sustaining a tear to her heart following a huge blow to her chest.

A children’s charity has blasted social services for missing more than 20 opportunities to save Ayeeshia – say the case had chilling echoes of the Baby P case.

Experts described her injuries as being similar to those suffered in a car crash or a fall from a building several stories high.

Derbyshire County Council took Ayeeshia into care but returned her to Smith and Rigby six months before she died.

Just three weeks before her death, Derbyshire social services had discussed taking the youngster into care once again.

The tot was struck with such force in Rigby’s flat in Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, that she bit through her own tongue, the court heard.
