73-year-old Oluremi Adeleye was convicted Monday after a judge found her guilty of child abuse and second-degree murder in Enita Salubi’s 2016 death.
A nanny camera showed Salubi pulling on the nanny’s dress and patting her leg while Adeleye was lying on the couch. Prosecutors say Adeleye eventually poured nearly eight ounces of milk down Salubi’s throat in less than 30 seconds.
Video shows Adeleye picking up Salubi after she falls to the ground and trying to give her another bottle. The infant eventually went limp.
Adeleye says she was merely trying to ensure the baby didn’t go hungry.
