A mother from hell who subjected one of her daughters to horrendous abuse from the day she was born is facing jail.
The mum, who cannot be named to protect the identities of her children, also admitted carrying out violent attacks on her second daughter when she was aged from five to 11.
They included threatening her with a knife and telling her she was going to “kill her in her sleep” – causing the girl to try to stay awake through the night for days in case her mother came back.
The girls were eventually removed from their mother’s care and had no contact until 2016 when the woman obtained email addresses and phone numbers for them.
Dundee Sheriff Court was told the messages contained threats, disparaging comments and “graphic” descriptions of sex with her partner, of his genitalia and her own private parts.
Today a sheriff remanded the woman in custody ahead of sentencing next month and told her: “It is very difficult to see how anything but a substantial custodial sentence will be appropriate.”
Her partner hurled abuse as she was led to the cells – shouting “she’s going to prison for a pack of ******* lies”.
The woman, 49, of Dundee, pleaded guilty to two charges of assault to injury committed between October 1988 and July 2008, and two of behaving in a threatening and abusive manner committed between May-November 2016.
The woman also admitted assaulting her eldest daughter “between birth and 13 years of age”.
Sheriff Alastair Brown deferred sentence until November 26 and said: “While these ladies were young children they were subjected to repeated and serious physical violence and abuse that was of a sort that has to be regarded as exceptionally serious.
“I will revoke bail and you are remanded in custody.”
