A mother who admitted killing her baby daughter has been spared jail.

Natasha Sultan, 21, was sentenced for infanticide following the death of six-week-old Amelia-Lilly, in October 2012.

The judge at Hull Crown Court gave her a three year supervision order after hearing how Amelia-Lilly was taken to hospital from her home in Welton Grove, Hull, on October 8 suffering from a head injury and later died.

Sultan eventually admitted inflicting the injury on her daughter.

She was due to stand trial for murder but the prosecution accepted her guilty plea to a charge of infanticide.
