PUBLISHED March 23, 2010

[2010] EWCA Crim 721

A sentence of six years' imprisonment imposed on a mother for causing the death of her child by deliberately administering adult drugs when aware of the risk involved was not manifestly excessive given the sustained, determined and persistent course of conduct undertaken for purely selfish reasons.
