4:56 pm on 6 November 2016

One of the women who was jailed for her part in the death of Rotorua toddler, Nia Glassie, has had another child removed from her care by Child, Youth and Family (CYF).

Oriwa Kemp was jailed for three years and four months for the assault and wilful ill-treatment of the three-year-old, who died in 2007 after prolonged abuse.

She has given birth to at least three children since serving her sentence - all have now been taken by CYF.

In a statement, the agency said the decision to remove Oriwa Kemp's children was in their best interests, and her family accepted that.
