18nov05 A WOMAN who fatally scalded her infant daughter in a bath has been jailed for a minimum three years and nine months. The eight-month-old baby died from severe scalding and internal organ failure in October 2003, after she was placed in a bath so hot that her skin peeled off. The baby's 30-year-old mother, who can be identified only as F, pleaded guilty in the New South Wales Supreme Court to the infant's manslaughter. Sentencing her today, Justice Megan Latham said F, who had been using illicit drugs on the day of the baby's death, had displayed gross criminal negligence. Neighbours heard the child screaming in the South Strathfield unit for up to an hour and a half on October 15, the night of the bath, Justice Latham said. http://www.thecouriermail.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5936,17286881%255E1702,00.html ................
