A 17 year old girl with cerebral palsy was found in her mothers home weighing only 10kg (23 pounds) - the average weight for a 2 - 3 year old. Social services was first notified of the abuse 4 months before she was found.
The girls mother has not given any answers as to why she starved her daughter. She was sentenced to 18 month probation.
