Mum jailed over death of son she left at home alone while she visited her boyfriend



A mum whose seven-year-old son was killed after she left him at home alone, while she visited her boyfriend, has been jailed for neglect.



Wendy Hall, 33, left her son, Malakye, in a locked house with no lights on while she went to see her partner.



The child managed to unlock the door shortly after she left and wandered onto a busy road, where he was hit and killed by a taxi.







A court heard the "popular" schoolboy only had his mum’s phone to play with when she left him at their home in Lindley Road, Bradford, on August 11 last year.



At around 10pm, Malakye was run over and fatally injured on Manchester Road.



When a police officer came across the scene, the damaged phone was found in the boy’s possession, leading them to the house, which was in darkness with the door open.



Hall was then traced to her partner’s home and taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary to identify her son’s body.Latest Post
