An ‘evil’ mother has confessed to murdering her three-year-old daughter by leaving her home alone while she went on a week-long partying spree.
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 having eaten the small amount of food – yoghurt, chicken and sausages – her mother had left her.
Before leaving for her party week coinciding with Valentine’s Day last year, Plenkina turned off the water in the flat.
The girl’s body was found by her grandmother Irina Plenkina, 47, who had come to wish her a happy third birthday.
