Baby girl dies alone in cot after dad neglects her to play games and watch TVSeptember 27, 2021
A BABY girl died alone in her cot after her dad neglected her to play games and watch TV all night, a court heard.
Michael Conroy, 27, then slept in until 3pm while Kiera Conroy, 19-months, was left unattended in a different room at home in North Lanarkshire.
The tot's lifeless body was tragically discovered the next day – after Conroy finally awoke at 3pm.
The couple were getting ready to head out just days before Christmas in 2017 when Kiera was found.
The little girl's death was initially deemed "unexplained" before further investigations proved otherwise.
Conroy, from Coatbridge, has now appeared at Airdrie Sheriff Court pleading guilty to wilfully causing or procuring her to be ill-treated, neglected and exposed in a manner likely to cause her unnecessary suffering or injury to health.
Kiera's mum Kirsty Boyle also pleaded guilty to the charge, but the court has not yet accepted the plea, the Daily Record reports.
