An alcoholic mother of eight who starved her four-year-old son to death and left his body in a cot for nearly two years has been jailed for 15 years.
Amanda Hutton, 43, was found guilty of the manslaughter of Hamzah Khan at Bradford Crown Court yesterday.
Hamzah's body was found in squalor at Hutton's home in Bradford in September 2011.
Hutton admitted neglecting five of her other children aged between five and 13, who were living in the terrible conditions.
Her eldest son Tariq Khan, 24, was given a two-year suspended sentence for preventing the burial of his younger brother.
