The horrific act of killing a child could only be worsened by the fact this 4 year old boy was not only murdered, by done so at the hands of his mother and her partner. The boy Daniel Pelka died after suffering a massive blow to the head. The little boy was allegedly starved, tortured and beaten at the hands of his own mother and her partner.
The couple will have to serve at least 30 years behind bars before being eligible for parole. The pair showed no remorse at Birmingham Crown Court where the jurors heard about the 6 months of brutality the little boy was subjected to before his untimely death.
Lisa Windridge from the Crown Prosecution service called the murder a ‘heinous crime’:
"We hope that the sentence today brings closure to this case for the family of Daniel, both in this country and in Poland. This has been a very difficult case for all of those involved with it and we are pleased that justice has finally been achieved for Daniel Pelka. Thank you. No questions at this stage."
