THE mother of a severely malnourished seven-year-old girl told her husband not to be silly when he suggested she may die, a jury has been told.
The New South Wales Supreme Court was told the girl was a skeletal 9kg at the time, and had been sleeping for all but four hours a day.
The autistic girl died within the week from the combined effects of malnutrition and dehydration.
