Verphy Kudi is a teenage mother, who has admitted causing the death of her 20-month-old daughter in Brighton.
Kudi partied for six days to mark turning 18 – leaving 20-month-old Asiah to starve to death alone at her flat in Brighton, Sussex in December 2019
She is 19 years old.
Death of Asiah
Asiah’s death at a property in Islingword Road on 11 December 2019 was investigated by the major crime team, Sussex Police said after the hearing.
Det Ch Insp Andy Wolstenholme said: “This was a particularly distressing case for my team and me to investigate, and has caused great sorrow amongst Verphy’s family and the many agencies that have supported Verphy and Asiah.
“We note the guilty plea entered in this case, and continue to prepare for Verphy’s sentencing in May.”
Brighton and Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership said it was working with partners to look into what happened and is conducting a Child Safeguarding Practice Review.
A Brighton and Hove City Council spokesman said: “The case is currently the subject of criminal proceedings, and the city’s Safeguarding Children Partnership is also conducting a review of the circumstances into the tragic death of this young child.
“We have fully supported the police investigation, and are committed to working with the partnership in its review and taking learning from this.
“Asiah was not on a child protection plan and was not involved with social work services when she died.”
Verphy Kudi Admits Causing Girl’s Death
A young mum who left her baby home alone for six days while she celebrated her birthday has been convicted of manslaughter.
Verphy Kudi, now 19, pleaded guilty at Lewes Crown Court this morning.
A court heard that the teenager walked out on 20-month-old Asiah and partied while her baby starved to death in 2019.
Judge Christine Laing QC told her: “You have heard that before I get to sentence you the defense wants to get a report on your behalf and a doctor will no doubt make arrangements to see you and interview you over the next few weeks.”
The judge ordered that all social services records relating to the case be disclosed to the defense ahead of sentencing.
The case was adjourned to a provisional sentencing date of May 28, but Kudi was warned this may be delayed.
The mum, who has been in prison since being charged in October last year, was remanded in custody.
She waved at dad Muba Kudi, 59 after staff pointed him out during the hearing.
Speaking after, he said: “My heart is so broken. My daughter was missing. She had been missing since the age of 14.”
Asiah was born on March 22, 2018.
She had been living at the flat in Brighton with her mother, which they had been housed by social services since September 30, 2019.
The baby was under a child protection plan but there was no social worker assigned when she died.
