A Lanarkshire mother who failed to get medical help for her dying teenage daughter has been jailed for over three years. 

Thirteen-year-old Robyn Goldie complained of feeling unwell to her mother,  between 19 July, 2018 and 26 July, 2018. 

She later died at their home in Wishaw from peritonitis - an infection caused by a perforated stomach ulcer.

At the High Court in Glasgow last month, Goldie pleaded guilty to neglecting Robyn.

The court heard that on various occasions the 45-year-old bit her daughter, hit her, puller her hair and spat at her.

Goldie also admitted to failing to provide her daughter with food, clothing and heating, and allowing her to drink alcohol and smoke cannabis.

Lord Beckett told Goldie today she must serve three years and six months

Procurator Fiscal for High Court, Kenny Donnelly, said: “By putting her own interests above caring for her daughter, Sharon Goldie completely failed in her duty as a parent.

“Robyn suffered an extended period of neglect at the hands of her mother, and was ultimately left to die alone without medical help. This was a challenging case and a distressing crime.

“Our thoughts are with Robyn’s loved ones as they attempt to come to terms with what happened.”
