British mother admits killing daughter by making her obese

A British mother has admitted killing her teenage daughter by allowing her to become morbidly obese.

Sarah Lloyd-Jones, 39, has pleaded guilty to grossly negligent manslaughter and admitting the death of a child for failing to look after daughter Kaylea Titford, 16, according to the Wales News Service.

The wheelchair-bound teenager was found dead in bed at her family’s home in Wales in October 2020 – after suffering from “multiple medical conditions” including spina bifida, the report said.

Both of her parents have been accused of allowing her to become morbidly obese by not managing her diet and exercise and then not getting her medical attention when she clearly needed it, the outlet said.

When she pleaded guilty at the December 12 hearing, mother Lloyd-Jones admitted in Mold Crown Court that it was “reasonably foreseeable” that her actions would result in an apparent risk of death.

However, the girl’s father, 44, Alun Titford, has denied the same allegations. He is due to appear in court next month.

Lloyd-Jones will be sentenced sometime after the father’s trial, her hearing said. Judge Rhys Rowlands warned her that “all options will be open to sentencing” while saying the mother’s guilty plea would be upheld.

A separate hearing on the girl’s cause of death had previously heard that it was due to “inflammation and infection in extensive areas of ulcers arising from obesity and its complications in a girl with spina bifida and hydrocephalus (water on the brain),” the said Sun .

A final conclusion on this has also been adjourned pending the conclusion of the criminal case, the outlet said.

“Although the medical cause of death of Dr. James may of course be herself, but the circumstances leading up to Kaleigh’s death are being investigated by Dyfed-Powys Police,” Coroner Graeme Hughes had said.

“As such, these investigations give me reason to believe that Kaleigh’s death may be unnatural, since a natural cause of death may be considered unnatural if there is culpable human involvement or contributory involvement in that death.”
