A couple have been found guilty of murdering a three-year-old boy who died in hospital on Christmas Eve after being abused, neglected and beaten.
A jury at Wolverhampton Crown Court took seven hours to convict Christopher Taylor and Kayley Boleyn of killing Ryan Lovell-Hancox in an attack at their flat in Bilston, West Midlands, in December 2008.
A four-week trial heard that Ryan's mother was paying around £40 a week for Taylor, 25, and 19-year-old Boleyn to look after Ryan while she decorated her home in the month before the boy's death.
The pair were also convicted of child cruelty.
