A mother has been arrested and is expected to be charged with manslaughter over her little girl’s death.

Jessica Greatorex, 22, was arrested at her Tarro home in the NSW Hunter region early this morning, almost two months after her 20-month-old daughter Hayley Rose suffered a cardiac arrest.

Paramedics were called to the house when Hayley was found unresponsive on June 19.

Hayley was rushed to John Hunter Hospital with her mother following in an ambulance behind, but she was unable to be revived.

A post mortem revealed she suffered injuries to her head, torso and internal organs, including broken ribs and a collapsed lung.

Last week Ms Greatorex’s partner Timothy Andrew Whiteley, 26, was charged with murder over Hayley’s death.

More details to come….

  • A parent is meant to be the most fierce protector of their.child. Whether by blood or by love, this is no parent.


  • The cardiac arrest could easily have been caused by the punctured lung (a result of child abuse) as possibly her heart was getting enough air to keep her heart beating. hardly an accessory


  • What is the mother being charged with? An accessory to murder?


  • How on earth can someone do this to a defenceless child!! Makes me sick and breaks my heart. So unfair! No dount the parent will be deemed mentally ill and get away with murder!


  • How can people do this to defenceless kids yet alone their own. Truely heart breaking and evil.


  • I don’t understand how anyone can hurt a children – let alone their own child. It is just too terrible to consider.


  • When I hear of child abuse, my brain just goes into confusion. How, how can anyone hurt a child? It’s beyond belief. Poor little girl. R.I.P.


  • I have no words. This is horrific. Poor baby girl RIP


  • Poor little angel may she RIP


  • I get so mad and so sad when I read things like this. That poor defenseless baby. I hope he gets what’s coming to him in prison !
