Jas Mann defends in rubbish chute baby case

Fri, 21 Jun 2013

Jaymin Abdulrahman, 25, has been jailed for two and a half years after being found guilty of grievous bodily harm.
 
The mother threw her baby, who was six days old, down the fifth floor rubbish chute at her home in Whitmore Reans. The baby, who is now being taken care of by foster parents, suffered a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain.
 
Abdulrahman said that at the time she was suffering from an extreme form of post-natal depression. A psychiatrist confirm that her symptoms fitted with postpartum psychosis, a mental illness. The defence team stated that this condition meant that reality was 'lost or distorted'.
