|News, Violent crime

A young mother has been sentenced to serve a minimum term of 12 years detention for killing her newborn son.

Paris Mayo, 19, of Ruardean, Gloucestershire, was sentenced today (26 June 2023) at Worcester Crown Court for the murder of Stanley Mayo.

A CPS spokesperson said:
“This is a tragic and complex case. Stanley Mayo’s short life was filled with pain and suffering when he should have been nurtured and loved. The prosecution built a case based on medical evidence which proved that Paris Mayo’s actions were deliberate, she chose to hide her pregnancy, give birth alone and kill her baby, then hide his body despite accepting that she had a family who would have supported her. Although Paris Mayo has been sentenced today, nothing can bring back poor Stanley who tragically lost his life before it even got a chance to begin.”
