Sir Roy Meadow is a paediatrician who is well known for his research in child abuse. In 1999 two of Sally baby boys died. The first death was first recordered as a natural cot death. But after her second baby boy died she was tried and convicted of murdering both of her children and given a lifetime sentance.
Roy Meadow testified in her trial stating that chance of two natural cot deaths was 1 in 73 million and this should happen once in 100 years.
