A man has been found guilty of murdering a two-year-old girl after becoming frustrated at her soiling herself. Amina Agboola, two, was found injured and like a "rag doll" at her home near Peterborough on November 21 last year. She died later that day after being taken to hospital.

Her mother's boyfriend, Dean Harris, later admitted manslaughter, saying he had lost his temper and kicked her in the stomach, Cambridge Crown Court heard.

Harris, 19, of Scott Drive, Yaxley, denied murder but was found guilty by a jury today after about two hours of deliberations.

Sarah Racqueman, 29, also of Scott Drive, was cleared of causing or allowing her daughter's death. She had already admitted cruelty to two other children.
