Karen Harrington (38) was expressionless as she received a life sentence after a Central Criminal Court jury rejected what prosecutors slated as her “doughnut-shaped” argument that she did not kill toddler Santina Cawley (2).

Harrington had pleaded not guilty to the murder of the little girl in the early hours of July 5, 2019, at Apartment 26 in Elderwood Park off Cork’s Boreenmanna Road – but she could offer no inkling as to how the child suffered such catastrophic injuries.
