Tragic story of how mom gets jailed as son dies home alone while she visited her boyfriend
A 33-year-of mother, Wendy Hall has been sentenced to jail for leaving her 7years old son alone at home while she visited her lover.
Reportedly, Wendy had left her son, Malakye, in a locked house with no lights on while she went to see her partner.
The incident occurred last year, August 11, at their home, Lindley Road, Bradford.
According to the Prosecutor, Abigail Langford Hall was interviewed the next day admitted to leaving Malakye at home without a guide.
A court heard the “popular” schoolboy only had his mum’s phone to play with when she left him.
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.
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.
Miss Langford said: “She told officers she had left the door to the premises locked so that Malakye could not go out.”
She said she intended to take her son to her partner’s but the boy changed his mind about going.
