Khyra Ishaq: Mother and stepfather charged with murder

The mother and stepfather of seven-year-old Khyra Ishaq are to be charged with her murder, the Crown Prosecution Service confirmed today.

Khyra, from Handsworth near Birmingham, was found with her five siblings in a reportedly emaciated state in May.

Her mother Angela Gordon and her mother’s partner Junaid Abuhamza have been charged with “causing or allowing” the death of a child and are due to appear at Birmingham Crown Court tommorow.

Birmingham Council’s safeguarding children’s board have started the serious case review into Khyra’s death.
