Alicante woman given 14 years for abuse and murder of young girl

A WOMAN has been jailed for mistreating and killing a girl in Alicante.
The Court of Alicante sent the woman down for over 14 years after being found guilty of beating to death a five-year old girl she was looking after in the San Gabriel neighbourhood of Alicante.
The incident happened in February 2014 when the woman called the authorities saying the girl had suffered a fall in the bathroom. The youngster died the following morning at Alicante’s General Hospital as a result of three strong blows to the head. She showed signs of ill treatment, was malnourished and covered in bruises.
The woman was looking after the girl as the biological father was in prison and the mother did not have the resources to care for her. The mother told the court if she had known she was being abusive she would never have let her daughter stay with her.
The prosecution hinted that the woman’s 11 year-old son may also have had something to do with the abuse, but the court said they found no evidence of this.
