Couple in court over toddler heroin death

A BRITISH couple have appeared in court charged with the manslaughter of a 23-month-old boy, after he died from a heroin overdose.

Emma Bradburn (33) and Simon Jones (29) appeared at Wolverhampton Magistrates Court. They also faced a further charge of causing or allowing the death of a child.

Bradburn, wearing a black coat and top, and Jones, wearing a dark grey hoodie, spoke only to confirm their names, addresses and dates of birth.

Their solicitors indicated not guilty pleas to all charges. There was no application for bail and both were remanded in custody.
