Watch The Broadcast At The End Of The Article:

Baby Peter’s mother has been jailed indefinitely for causing or allowing the toddler’s death.

The 17-month-old died after months of abuse in Haringey, north London. His mother must serve at least five years.

Her 32-year-old boyfriend was jailed for 12 years for causing the death and for life for raping a two-year-old girl. He must serve at least 10 years.

Their lodger, Jason Owens, was jailed indefinitely for causing Baby Peter’s death, to serve at least three years.


Judge Stephen Kramer described Baby Peter’s mother as a “manipulative” and “self-centred” person with “a calculating side as well as a temper”.

“I reject the suggestion that you were blind to what was happening in that house or that you were naive,” he told her.
