Mother and partner guilty of killing toddler Kyrell Matthews after ‘harrowing’ abuse caught on phone

A mother and her ex-boyfriend have been found guilty of killing the woman’s two-year-old son, who suffered weeks of abuse before he died in south London.

Kemar Brown, 28, hit two-year-old Kyrell Matthews repeatedly at his Croydon home, before the boy died from his injuries in October 2019, the Old Bailey was told.  Brown was found guilty of murder on Friday, while Kyrell’s mother Phylesia Shirley, 24, was acquitted of murder but found guilty of manslaughter.
