Daniel Pelka murder: 'Mother joined in abuse', says CPS

A mother and her partner have been found guilty of murdering her four-year-old son, who had been beaten and starved.

During a nine-week trial at Birmingham Crown Court, emaciated Daniel Pelka was likened by a doctor to a concentration camp victim.

Outside court, Lisa Windridge from the Crown Prosecution Service said not only did mother Magdelena Luczak fail to protect Daniel, she also played an active role in her son's death.
