    A woman jailed for murdering her 18-month-old daughter, can now be named after abandoning her bid for continued name suppression

    A woman jailed for murdering her 18-month-old daughter, can now be named after abandoning her bid for continued name suppression


    Southern Thompson was sentenced in May for abusing, neglecting and bashing Comfort Jay Thompson-Pene to death in their Tirau home in July 2018.

    She was jailed for life with a minimum non-parole period of 17 years on charges of murder, ill-treatment of a child, injuring her with intent and failing to seek medical care.

    Open Justice reports Thompson's application for name suppression was dismissed.

    She initially appealed that decision, but has now abandoned the appeal, meaning her name suppression lapses.
