A 73-year old Nigerian woman, Oluremi Adeleye, who worked as a nanny until 2016, has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for killing eight-month old Enita Salubi.

The former nanny, convicted in February of killing the eight-month-old baby girl in 2016, was sentenced on Friday in Prince George’s County in the state of Maryland, said State’s Attorney Aisha N. Braveboy. 

The state’s attorney’s office said Adeleye was sentenced to 40 years in prison with all but 15 years suspended in addition to five years supervised probation upon release.

Authorities added thay Oluremi Adeleye was captured on home video unscrewing the lid of Enita Salubi’s bottle and pouring around eight ounces of milk down the infant’s throat in less than 30 seconds, “essentially drowning her” in October 2016. 

The video also showed the baby going limp and Adeleye rocking her. 

“After declining a trial by jury, the state’s attorney’s office says Adeleye opted to have her case tried before a judge where she was found guilty of second-degree murder and first-degree and second-degree child abuse,” reported WTOP.

“This is a heartbreaking case. This family is still in mourning,” said Braveboy. “No one expects to leave their healthy baby home and return from work to find that child dead. We are pleased that the family had the foresight to have the video camera in place because that played a key role in getting justice for their baby.”
