A couple is facing jail after their 8-week-old baby daughter died and was reportedly found with sixty broken bones.

The parents tried to blame the injuries on paramedics.

Naomi Johnson, 23, and Benjamin O'Shea, 26, were found guilty of physically abusing their daughter Amina and of committing cruelty to another child.

Paramedics were called after Amina stopped breathing in 2019, but died at the scene in Southwark, central London.

The cause of her death was initially thought to be Unexplained Death in Infants, police said.

But a post mortem later revealed Amina had suffered a series of horrific injuries with over 60 fractured bones, which included 24 limb bone fractures and 41 to her ribs.

Johnson and O'Shea appeared at a four-week trial at Inner London Crown Court and are due to be sentenced on December 17.

Detectives from the Met’s Homicide and Serious Crime looked through texts between the couple as part of the investigation.

The found O’Shea boasted of his military service despite him being a reservist for a couple of years.

Between 2016 and 2019, he also made multiple calls to NHS 111 about his self-diagnosed PTSD and aggression issues.

O'Shea claimed he had taken Amina to a GP for a routine check-up on the day before her death.

He also said Johnson had given her some paracetamol so she would go back to sleep.

O'Shea told paramedics he put her back to bed and phoned 999 after finding her unresponsive.

Amina had suffered continued physical abuse, according to Radiologists who found multiple fractures.

The post-mortem revealed no cause of death, but due to the injuries sustained, a criminal investigation was launched

Johnson and O’Shea were arrested and claimed Amina’s death was due to the GP visit and fractures caused by the paramedics

Police found texts between the couple where they admit to slapping and treating the child poorly.

Detective Inspector Melanie Pressley, who led the investigation, said:

"This is a truly heart-breaking case that has touched all of us who have worked on bringing Johnson and O'Shea before the court for their monstrous crimes."

"The cruelty and callousness with which the pair discussed the treatment of the other child in this case is shocking. Children depend on adults and the children in this case were sorely betrayed by Johnson and O'Shea in the most tragic of ways."

"In eight weeks of life Amina suffered an unimaginable number of injuries. The trauma she endured in her short life is impossible to comprehend, her injuries are a catalogue of the most despicable abuse. Equally incomprehensible is how an adult can inflict such cruelty on defenceless, innocent children."

"Throughout our investigation, we have been unable to establish how the baby died, and Johnson and O'Shea have been steadfast in their refusal to answer our questions."

"They have sought to protect themselves in a way they clearly did not for the two children in this case."
