A woman accused of the starvation murder of her seven-year-old daughter allegedly did not try to resuscitate the child because ants were crawling from her mouth, a NSW jury has been told.
The NSW Supreme Court, sitting at East Maitland, was told the seven-year-old girl, found dead at her Hawks Nest home on November 3, 2007, had the worst malnutrition one specialist had ever seen.
A post-mortem examination showed the child to be 106cm tall and weighing just 9kg at death, the court was told.
when he had asked the dead girl's older sister how she was coping, she replied: "I'm fine. I had a cry. I'm over it now."
