Cruel dad Jordain Palmer. See SWNS story SWCRUEL; A mother-of-three and her partner have been caged for a catalogue of horrific abuse against her 14-month-old daughter. Little Ruby Phillips was found with bruises all over her face, ears, torso and legs and fractures to her hands, left wrist and right shin bone. All ten fingernails on her hands and her big toes were torn and black – either from being stamped on or shut in a doorframe. Her mother Melissa Phillips, 19, was locked up for four years after admitting cruelty to a child under 16.
