Oluremi Adeleye, a 73 year old Nigerian nanny has been found guilty of murdering an 8-month-old baby by force-feeding her half a pint of milk in less than 30 seconds.
As reported by the Washington Post, She was trusted with the care of 8-month-old Enita Salubi in Maryland.
In October 2016, Oluremi was captured on a nanny cam taking the teat off a bottle as she forced the child to guzzle down baby formula.
Prosecutors say the nanny performed the sickening punishment after the baby’s crying woke her from a nap.
In footage from the nanny cam, Enita could be seen struggling as Adeleye tipped the contents of a nearly full bottle into her mouth – drowning her with the milk. The toddler then collapsed but Adeleye picked her up and even tried to force her to drink another bottle of milk.
Prosecuting attorney Artemis Moutsatsos told Prince George’s County Circuit Court:
She was getting her to shut up by pouring down the milk.
In the harrowing footage, played in court, baby Enita could then be seen going limp as Adeleye tried to rouse her. Adeleye then called the toddler’s dad who called 911 as he raced home.
Paramedics said that milk was pouring out of the baby’s mouth and nose as they performed CPR.
