10 / 11 / 2009 - Woman who killed her unborn twins is jailed
A woman who killed her unborn twins by injecting herself to speed up labour and treated another child as her slave was yesterday jailed for nearly five years.
Mum-of-five Faiso Sahil, 35, was desperate to get out of hospital because she was bored, disliked the food and was fed up being pregnant.
Sahil, who had midwife training from her native Somalia, injected herself with Syntometrine.
But when her twins died she claimed nurse Caroline Randall administered it, leading to her arrest.
Sahil, who is allowed to live in the UK for 10 years, later tried to withdraw the claim and said Allah took her twins.
At Bristol crown court in May she was found guilty of attempting to pervert justice and beating a nine-year-old girl but fled to Finland on bail.
Yesterday Sahil, of Bristol, was given two sentences of 14 and 42 months after she was captured and returned. Ms Randall said: "This has been hanging over me two years."
