A Russian mother presently faces time in jail after confessing to murdering her starving three-year-old girl who ate washing powder after being left alone for a week while her mother went partying.
Maria Plenkina, 21, deserted tragic Kristina who was so hungry she tried to eat washing powder, a court was told.
The girl was found naked having starved to death in a cold room in a rubbish-strewn flat in the Russian city of Kirov, having eaten the small amount of food – yoghurt, chicken and sausages – her mother had left her.
