A mother has today been jailed for over two years for allowing her boyfriend to kill their baby girl after he watched porn and smoked cannabis.

Tiffany Tate, 22, was jailed for a total of 33 months after turning a blind eye to the violence Michael Roe, 32, unleashed on their innocent little girl Holly.

It included him trying to feed her by putting a syringe of milk up her nose and another time leaving her crying in agony.

Roe, 32, shook his daughter to death after watching porn and smoking a joint in his sex-toy-filled shed.

Tiny Holly suffered fatal head injuries and 11 rib fractures in her short life, inflicted on her on more than one occasion at the family home in East Sussex.

Paramedics found her not breathing and with no heart activity when they were finally called to treat her after the final act of aggression from her father.

Despite attempts to revive her, she was tragically pronounced dead a couple of hours later.

Her father Roe denied the accusation and sought to pin the blame for the death on the baby’s mother, a court heard.

But a trial found that Holly, who had been born two months prematurely, died at her father’s hands.
