Mother's neglect left child starved to death

A woman whose four-year-old son starved to death and was left in his cot for nearly two years has been found guilty of killing him.

Hamzah Khan's mummified remains were found at his Bradford home in 2011.

His mother Amanda Hutton, 43, was convicted of manslaughter by gross negligence at Bradford Crown Court.

Malcolm Taylor from the Crown Prosecution Service said his body was found in "the most appalling squalor".
