Detectives investigating the horrific murder of a five-year-old girl in Mitchen have charged with mother with murder.
Sutha Sivanantham, 35, of Monarch Parade CR4 was charged earlier this week following the death of Sayagi Sivanantham.
Sivanantham is due to appear via video link at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court today (11th September).
Police were called to an address on Monarch Parade in Mitchem at around 16:00 hours on Tuesday 30th June to reports that two people had been injured.
When 999 response team officers arrived at the address, they found a woman and a girl, both of whom were suffering from severe knife wounds.
A five-year-old Sayagi was rushed to hospital by the London Ambulance Service where she was tragically pronounced dead.
A post-mortem examination held at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital on Friday, 3 July, gave the cause of death as stab injuries.
