A British soldier who survived a rogue attack in Afghanistan that left five of his comrades dead is facing a substantial jail term last night after he admitted killing his 19-month-old daughter upon his return to the UK.
Lance Corporal Liam Culverhouse from Northampton was shot six times in the face and hit in both arms and legs when a renegade Afghan policeman opened fire at a checkpoint in Helmand Province.
The 25-year-old only escaped with his life by playing dead while the rampaging gunman stood over him, but lost his right eye in the 2009 incident.
He was flown back to the UK for treatment but 18 months after returning home he attacked his seven-week-old daughter, Khloe Abrams, which resulted in her suffering severe injuries.
She was taken to hospital following the attack, in May 2011, which took place at the family home in Northampton, but never recovered and eventually died in a children's hospice in November last year.
Culverhouse, of Kingsthorpe, Northampton, pleaded guilty to causing or allowing the death of Khloe Abrams when he appeared at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday.
