Where a member of the same household as a child or vulnerable adult was charged with allowing his or her death, the question whether the defendant had had frequent contact with him or her was a free-standing question, unrelated to issues whether that person had been, or ought to have been, aware of the risk of serious harm to the child or vulnerable adult, and whether the unlawful act had occurred in circumstances of the kind which the defendant had foreseen or ought to have foreseen.”
