BABY P's killers have been sentenced today.

Baby Peter's mother, 27, was sentenced indefinitely and must serve at least five years for causing or allowing the 17-month-old boy's death.

Her boyfriend, 32, was sentenced for 12 years for causing or allowing Baby Peter's death to happen and given a life sentence for raping a two-year-old girl. He must serve at least 20 years for the rape which can be reviewed after 10 years. Both sentences will run concurrently.

Their lodger, Jason Owen, was also sentenced indefinitely, this morning at the Old Bailey, and must serve at least three years.

Baby Peter was 17 months old when he was found dead after months of abuse in his cot in Haringey in August 2007.
