A mother of eight is due to be sentenced after she was found guilty of starving her four-year-old son Hamzah Khan to death.

Amanda Hutton, 43, showed no emotion as she was convicted of manslaughter by a jury at Bradford Crown Court on Thursday.

The court heard that Hamzah's mummified body was found in Hutton's Bradford bedroom almost two years after he died in December 2009.

CPS: 'Truly tragic and heart-breaking case'

This was a truly tragic case involving the death of a little boy, Hamzah Khan, whose body, showing signs of extreme malnutrition, was discovered amidst scenes of the most appalling squalor at the family home in Bradford in September 2011.

It is likely his body had lain undiscovered for the best part of two years.

It is heart-breaking to contemplate the suffering Hamzah must have endured.
