A social media addict posted a twisted online video paying tribute to her daughter just weeks after she died following a vicious assault that saw the mum jailed for her manslaughter.
The sick clips, posted to video-sharing website TikTok, seem to show Nicola Priest mourning daughter Kaylee-Jayde Priest, who was found dead in a flat in Solihull, West Midlands one year ago today.
In one shocking video, posted just 39 days after little Kaylee was found dead, a tearful Priest seems to mouth along to music with lyrics that apologise for "messing up bad", BirminghamLive reports.
The child had been dead for several hours when Priest finally made a 999 call on the morning of August 9 2020.
She had received injuries consistent with kicks or stamps in the weeks before she died.
Birmingham Crown Court heard Kaylee was the victim of a “sustained a ferocious assault” which left her with damage to her chest including a punctured lung and internal rupturing of the intestines after she interrupted Priest and her boyfriend Callum Redfern having sex.
Following a harrowing trial that saw jurors reduced to tears, Priest and Redfern were both cleared of murder but convicted of manslaughter. Priest was also found guilty of child cruelty.
On Friday, Priest was jailed for 15 years while Redfern was sentenced to 14 years.
BirminghamLive have now revealed that killer mum Priest posted a series of stomach-churning "tributes" to her daughter just weeks after the three-year-old was hurt so badly she suffered brain injuries.
The first of the videos, posted on September 7 last year, is a slideshow movie of pictures of little Kaylee with the caption: "RIP my baby".
In the second, a tearful Priest, who was described as "uncaring" and selfie-obsessed as she was found guilty of manslaughter, appears to mouth along with the words to a song titled "To my parents".
As she rubs her cheeks in the video posted on September 17 she sings along to the lyrics: "I'm sorry mum and dad, I know I messed up bad, should have done better."
A third video with a several photos of Kaylee – including the flowers left at Kingshurst House in the hours after she was killed – was posted by Priest.
The mum captioned the video: "I love you so much darling mommy will never forget you ever!!! Rip angel."
Other videos show her dancing to TikTok songs and reviewing what appear to be make up products.
One caption read: "dancing always helps me".
Giving evidence during the trial and blaming Redfern for Kaylee's death, Priest insisted that she was "still broken" while posting the videos of her dancing and smiling.
Sentencing the duo, Mr Justice Foxton QC said: "You Priest did nothing to seek medical help. A prompt call could have saved Kaylee's life."
After pointing out that she and Redfearn both lied repeatedly in police interviews, the QC told Priest: "From the severity of the injuries caused by the assault it is clear there was an intention to cause serious harm."
