    UK - Ellie Butler, 6, brutally murdered, Sutton, 28 Oct 2013 #2

    A dad on trial for the murder of his six-year-old daughter told police to f*** off when they quizzed him over her death, a court heard.


    Little Ellie Butler died in hospital on October 28 2013 after medics found her lying on her bedroom floor with "catastrophic injuries".


    Her parents, Ben Butler and Jennie Gray, called 999 in a panic claiming she had fallen off a stool.


    But when Butler, 36, was questioned by cops over her devastating head injuries, he became "hostile" and "aggressive", a court heard, claiming he had previously been a victim of a "miscarriage of justice".

    A man accused of murdering his six-year-old daughter in a fit of rage has described freezing in shock the moment he found her collapsed on the floor of her bedroom, and expressed regret for not phoning an ambulance until some hours later.


    “I couldn’t move, I couldn’t breathe properly,” Ben Butler told a jury at the Old Bailey. “I didn’t help the way I should have helped. I tried to help, I tried to shake her. She didn’t wake, she didn’t respond to what I did. I tried to breathe in her mouth, it didn’t work. It just took the wind of my sails. I still don’t know why I didn’t do more.”


    Butler, 36, who denies killing his daughter Ellie, said he should have called an ambulance when he could not revive her, but he collapsed on the floor himself.

    The prosecution claims Ellie died after suffering skull fractures from being thrown against a wall or hit with a heavy blunt weapon.


    The court has heard he was previously convicted for shaking Ellie as a baby, although this was later quashed on appeal.


    The couple then won a High Court judgement to have Ellie returned to their care in 2012.

    Gray: when Post Mortem said she had "fractured scapula" I thought they were lying.

    Am moving over my posts of what JG has said today- maybe LB wants to do the same?( I'll do it for you if you are busy now)

    JG
    ".....has described three months of abusive texts to her as empty threats that were part of their “childish” rowing.....and that messages in which he called her a “****” or a “*****” meant nothing.

    ....She said he was never violent towards her or Ellie and the few times he had shoved her it was because she was “in his face”, and that texts in which she begged him not to kick her out or not to beat her up were just her being “*****y” or “dramatic”.

    “When I’m in an argument with someone I can be very *****y and very sarcastic,” she told jurors .....

    She said she felt hormonal after a botched abortion in January 2013 and texts in which she referred to him threatening to beat her were just “me being exaggerative”.

    She said she was ashamed of the texts, telling the jury that the trial was about the death of Ellie, not their rows, which she described as childish......

    Asked about one exchange in which she said Butler had kicked her in the genitals after he allegedly wanted her to mimic a pornography scene, she responded: “All I can say is I have never been kicked by Ben Butler, let alone in the female regions.”
    much more at the link guys - I'm snipping to keep to 10%

    BIB Anyone feeling sickened by her little flourishes?

    UL Part of the calculated scam- part of a claim the threats were never face to face - just words at a distance.
    ETA - Ok, let's see these text responses which say "course you will duckie", "whatevs", "talk to the hand" etc etc. Not seen any response like that from her in all the text exchanges.

    Shocking claims

    as LegallyB mentioned - radiation!
    here's the snippet
    ".....Ellie might not have died if her abnormalities had been diagnosed earlier or if she had not been maltreated as a baby in St Helier. She claimed the hospital had overdosed the baby with an adult dose of radiation during tests and that it had caused injury to her baby during her birth"

    Cue Dr. Janice Orphoven ? ( ie. the final Def medical expert/gun for hire has made this suggestion perhaps and will testify to it later? Where else have they got this possibility from?)

    "Jennie Gray breaks down in court describing day she hd to leave baby Ellie Butler with foster carer."

    Gigi, do you believe she rehearsed that - break down ?
    IMO It sounds rather like BB's "loss of control" , at the start of his testimony and his speedy ability to get back in the dock a few mins later.

    She's playing up just like I thought she would. Just like BB. Oh poor poor me. No matter what happened to Ellie. Which tbh. If I was accused and I knew I was in the right and innocent I'd be standing there defending myself. Tears or no tears!

    DMail account is slightly different, only different bit is

    Asked if Butler had ever been violent, she said: "Never. There's no way I would ever have allowed that."
    On the text messages, Gray said she was being "melodramatic and *****y", adding that she was "ashamed" of how she used to act.
    ....Asked about a text in which Gray tells Butler he has done all the "worst things a man can do to a woman", Gray said she was "exaggerating" and "just hurting".
    She added: "I have never been beaten by Ben Butler. Yes, we had altercations when I got in his face ... The only thing I have been is berated, but not beaten."

    About the same realm as her claimed 'botched' abortion.
    Thing is did she discharge herself cuz BB wanted her home as he had enough of the kids all day?
    If not. Then if she had to go in again. (By they way. They do a D&C usually after most terminations or miscarriages)
    Same again if she felt hard done by. Why not take it to a complaint?
    I'm finding much of her evidence very hard to swallow.
