A Blackpool woman has today (Wednesday, February 3) admitted the manslaughter of her baby daughter.
Caitlin Jones, 21, of Willowbank Avenue, pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of eight-month-old Francesca Haworth at Preston Crown Court.
Police were called by the Ambulance Service around 7.30am on November 7, 2018, following reports a baby had been found unresponsive at an address on Frederick Street.
Emergency services attended with Francesca taken to Blackpool Victoria Hospital where she sadly later died.
A Home Office post-mortem gave a cause of death as suffocation.
Jones was arrested and later charged with murder in July 2020.
However, following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, a guilty plea to manslaughter was accepted.
Jones was bailed and will be sentenced in June.
