Mother in Shannon kidnap case found guilty!!

The mother of Shannon Matthews has been found guilty of charges relating to her daughter's disappearance.
Karen Matthews, 33, and her co-accused Michael Donovan, 40, were convicted of kidnap, false imprisonment and perverting the course of justice.
The pair have been warned they face "substantial" jail terms when they are sentenced later.
The nine-year-old was held at Donovan's flat in Batley Carr, West Yorkshire, for 24 days.
The trial at Leeds Crown Court heard the pair kept Shannon "drugged, subdued and hidden from the public" so they could claim £50,000 in reward money.
The trial judge Mr Justice McCombe said earlier that he would adjourn sentencing for reports to be prepared. No application was made for bail and the two defendants were led away.
During the three-week trial, the court heard that Shannon, now 10, went missing on 19 February as she walked home from school.
