Nicola Priest Age
Nicola Priest, 23, was sentenced today to 15 years in prison for manslaughter after little Kaylee-Jayde Priest was found dead with chest and abdominal injuries last August.
Callum Redfern, the priest’s 22-year-old ex-lover, was also sentenced to 14 years in prison for the death of the child.
The mother was also sentenced to a three-year prison term on charges of child cruelty.
The imprisoned priest at Birmingham Crown Court described how Kaylee had been injured in a “savage” attack.
Experts compared their wounds to those of a child who was hit by a car at 40 mph or fell three stories on a concrete floor.
Mr. Justice Foxton QC said, “Kaylee was put to bed at around 7pm while the two of you were having sex in Nicola Priest’s bedroom.
“But like many kids her age, Kaylee didn’t want to go to bed, she wanted to stay up and play.”
He said there was no direct evidence of what happened next, but that Kaylee subsequently vomited repeatedly and later died overnight from her injuries.
The judge said, “The vomiting was the result of the severe beating you both were responsible for.
“Undoubtedly irritated by Kaylee’s crying as she asked to be let out, it interrupted the two of you as you were about to have sex.
“You lost your temper and were part of the attack that killed Kaylee.
“A prompt call for medical attention from one or the other of you would have saved Kaylee’s life.”
Haunting CCTV footage showed the mother from Edgbaston, Birmingham, with her daughter Kaylee-Jayde, just hours before the kid was found dead in her apartment on August 9th last year.
On Thursday, a jury convicted priests of manslaughter after hearing that they had dialed 999 – but Kaylee had been “dead before the call”.
The toddler described in court as a “happy child” died of serious chest and stomach injuries.
She also sustained historical injuries – including broken ribs, lower leg fractures and a broken sternum, the Birmingham Crown Court heard.
Priest and Callum Redfern blamed each other during their trial, but at the time they were in a “close sexual relationship”.
Both were unanimously acquitted of murder but convicted Thursday of manslaughter of Kaylee.
The jury heard Priest hit Kaylee on the head, calling her a “damn brat,” while the little girl also heard “crying in a frightened tone.”
On one occasion, neighbors in an apartment downstairs at Kingshurst House, Solihull overheard a bang and then Kaylee cry, before supposedly hearing priests say, “I’m just saying she fell off the bed.”
