‘Evil’ mother posted sick TikTok video saying ‘I’m sorry mum and dad I know I messed up bad’ one month after killing daughter, because she was getting in the way of sex life
A mother who killed her three year old daughter because she was getting in the way of her sex life posted a sick TikTok video saying ‘I messed up bad’ a month after her child’s death.
Nicola Priest, 23, was jailed for 15 years for manslaughter last week after her daughter Kaylee Jayde was found dead with chest and abdominal injuries at the flat where she lived in Birmingham on August 9 last year.
Priest’s boyfriend Callum Redfern, 22, was jailed for 14 years for manslaughter, with the couple killing Kaylee after she interrupted them while they were having sex.
Now, it has emerged that Priest set-up a TikTok account a month after killing her daughter.
In one sick video, Priest hangs her head in shame and seems to wipe tears from her eyes as a song plays in the background.
She then mouths the words to the song: ‘I’m sorry mum and dad. I know I messed up bad. I should’ve done, should’ve done better.‘
In other clips, she posts twisted tributes to her daughter before turning her attention to viral dances.
Priest and Redfern were convicted of manslaughter after a jury heard Priest rang 999 only after the youngster was dead. The mother was sentenced to 15 years for manslaughter and a three year concurrent sentence for child cruelty.
Sentencing Priest and Redfern last week, Mr Justice Foxton QC said: ‘On the evening of August 8 you Redfern went to Priest’s flat. The two of you went to have sex. Kaylee wanted to stay up and play. There is no direct evidence of what happened next.
‘Kaylee was sick more than once during the night as a result of the severe beating. You lost your tempers and it is clear you were joint participants in that assault. You both knew you had seriously injured Kaylee.
‘You, Priest did nothing to seek medical help. A prompt call could have saved Kaylee’s life. You both lied repeatedly during interviews.
‘From the severity of the injuries caused by the assault it is clear there was an intention to cause serious harm. The injuries were caused by a ferocious assault.
‘You and Redfern were equally responsible. You had ample opportunity to raise any concerns. Kaylee was very vulnerable and you were in a position of trust. You did nothing to summon help.’
Soon after the sentencing, Redfern’s father Andrew was convinced that Priest is an ‘evil mother’ and said ‘she doesn’t deserve kids’. He also said that his son was misled by Priest and ‘got caught up in it’, describing him as a ‘kid’ incapable of manipulating his ex-girlfriend.
In this footage there was no physical contact between the pair, with Priest neglecting even to reach out to hold her daughter’s hand.
Hours later, the youngster described in court as a ‘happy child’, died from serious chest and abdominal injuries.
Medical examinations later showed she had also suffered historical injuries including broken ribs, lower leg fractures and a broken sternum, Birmingham Crown Court heard.
Prosecutors said the messages painted a vivid picture of the ‘uncaring attitude from Priest and Redfern towards Kaylee’.
Andrew Redfern told the Sun: ‘Nikki is an evil mother she doesn’t deserve kids.
‘She was stood outside this house smoking and Kaylee’s nappy needed changing. She said ‘you can just stay in it’ – that was her attitude. She wouldn’t come in the house to take her to the toilet.’
Of his son, Andrew said he ‘got caught up in it’ and that ‘he was only there so he could have sex at the end of the day’.
‘He’s too much like a kid himself to be manipulating her’, he added.
Priest was also found guilty of cruelty to a child, relating to the youngster’s historical injuries, but Redfern was cleared of that charge.
In a statement released through police after the verdicts, Kaylee’s grandmother Debbie Windmill said the impact of her death would live with her for the rest of her life.
