A nurse has been found guilty of the manslaughter of a four–week–old baby, who bled to death after a botched home circumcision in Oldham.
Goodluck Caubergs died the day after Grace Adeleye carried out the procedure without anaesthetic and using only a pair of scissors, forceps and olive oil, a trial at Manchester Crown Court heard.
On Friday a jury of eight women and four men found Adeleye (67) guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence by a majority verdict of 10 to 2 after deliberating for over eight hours.
The Royal Oldham Hospital was only a mile and a half from the family home in Chadderton but by the time an ambulance was called the infant could not be saved, the court heard.
Sentencing was adjourned to a later date, and Adeleye, of Sarnia Court, Salford, was granted bail.
