Mary Konye remained calm and stony-faced as the guilty verdict was announced to a packed court room. Naomi Oni's mother jumped from her set and appeared jubilant at the verdict.
Judge, David Radford adjourned sentence until March 7 while psychological reports are prepared and said:
In ordering these reports my judgement is that in all likelihood the case well lead to a substantial custodial sentence.'But it will not be decided until I have had these reports - I do not want Konye to misunderstand the reasons.

A midwife who left a four-day-old baby face down in a stationery cupboard in a hospital in Essex has been given a three year caution. 35-year-old Yvonne Musonda-Malata was caring for the newborn girl at Queen's Hospital in Romford while her sick mother slept.
A tribunal heard she "failed to provide appropriate clinical care" to the baby while working on a night shift.
Yvonne Musonda-Malata will appear the hearing again tomorrow, when the Nursing and Midwifery Council will have to decide whether she will be punished. She had to rush from the hearing room last week after breaking down in tears, saying:
My life has nosedived into what I can only describe as a nightmare. I kept hoping it would be over, but it went from bad to worse.
