Tot murder trial hears of choking claim
A MOTHER accused of murdering her toddler daughter told a police officer the child had choked on a piece of bread, a court heard yesterday.
It is alleged Sadia Ahmed, 27, killed 14-month-old Inaya on April 17 last year in Drumchapel, Glasgow.
Constable Ryan Bird told the High Court in Glasgow that as he arrived at the house, paramedics raced out carrying Inaya.
Bird said he spoke to Ahmed in the kitchen.
He added: “She said along the lines of the baby has an eating disorder and she was trying to feed the baby.
“They usually feed her with syringes. However, that day she tried to feed the baby bread but it wasn’t eaten, so she stuffed the bread down the baby’s throat.”
Ahmed denies all the charges and the trial continues.
