UK mother guilty of stomping baby to death

A mother in Britain has been found guilty of stomping her baby girl to death.

Not even two, the girl's injuries were so severe, they were likened to those you would get from a car crash.

Despite six visits by social workers in her last month, she ended up dead.

The death of Ayeeshia Jane Smith isn't easy to speak of, let alone hear about. She was described as a happy and smiley child.

Just three months short of her second birthday, something unspeakable happened.

Mother Kathryn Smith was found guilty of murder.

Smith's partner, Matthew Rigby, was convicted of the lesser charge of "causing or allowing" her death.
