The County Court in Slavonski Brod has found the parents of a two-year-old girl guilty of killing their child. 

The court found that Nikoll Dedić of Nova Gradiška died on Easter 2021 as a result of severe injuries inflicted by her parents.


The parents were convicted on charges of violations of the rights of a child, child abuse, child neglect, and death by neglect and abuse. The mother was sentenced to 13 years and the father to 7 years in prison.


The verdict is not final and can be appealed. The parents will await the outcome of the appeal in court custody.
