Iman Omar Yousef stabbed her three-year-old daughter repeatedly before dousing body in acid, court heard.
A woman unlawfully killed her three-year-old daughter before dousing her body in acid, a jury found today.
The body of Alia Ahmed Jama was discovered by police at the home she shared with her mother, Iman Omar Yousef, in Erdington, Birmingham, on 13 February.
Birmingham crown court heard that the child had been stabbed repeatedly and acid had corroded her skin, bones and internal organs.
Yousef, 25, an asylum seeker from Somalia who suffers from schizophrenia, was initially charged with Alia's murder, but Mr Justice Flaux ruled that she was unfit to plead to the charge and jurors were instructed to consider whether she committed the act of unlawfully killing her daughter.
