Face of mum who left her 7-year-old son alone before he was killed on road

This is the face of a mum who left her little boy to wander into a busy road where he was tragically killed after being hit by a car.

Little Malakye Hall, 7, died after he was hit in Manchester Road in Bradford, West Yorkshire, in August last year.

A court heard that mum Wendy Hall, 33, had bolted the door of her home and gone to visit her partner – but her son escaped.

He then walked out onto the busy road and was tragically killed, reports Yorkshire Live.

The mum – who left Malakye without electricity or gas – has now been pictured for the first time.

She was jailed for three years at Bradford crown court on Tuesday after pleading guilty to neglect.

Hall also received an additional 18 months in prison for other matters.

The court was told that the mum gave Malakye her mobile to entertain himself while she went out.

And, when police came across the scene of the fatal collision, the damaged phone was found in the boy’s possession.


Inquiries then led them to the house on Lindley Road – which was in darkness with the door open.

Hall was subsequently traced to her partner’s home and she was taken to the Bradford Royal Infirmary to identify her son’s body.

Prosecutor Abigail Langford said the mum was interviewed the next day, when she admitted leaving Malakye at home on his own.

She said: “She told officers she had left the door to the premises locked so that Malakye could not go out.”

Jailing Hall, recorder Tahir Khan QC said: “I’ve no reason to doubt you locked the door to stop him getting out but as we know he did with those tragic consequences.

“The deliberate act of leaving Malakye alone and vulnerable resulted in his death.”
