‘Missed opportunities’ after dads raised domestic abuse concerns before child murders | Yahoo

Two-and-a-half-year-old Maya Chappell was shaken to death by her mother’s new partner, Michael Daymond, at her Shotton Colliery home in September 2022. Daymond is now serving a sentence for murder, and Maya’s mother Dana Carr was found guilty of child cruelty, neglect, and allowing the death of a child.
