Girl (16) charged with murdering her newborn baby

A 16-year-old girl has appeared in court charged with murdering her newborn baby.

The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Grantham Magistrates' Court accused of murdering the baby at an address in Lincolnshire, England between September 2 and September 6.

 

She was remanded into local authority care to appear before Lincoln Crown Court this afternoon.

 

Remanding the girl, Chair of the Bench Richard Tollemache told her: "I hope you do understand what is going on. It must be frightening for you. I feel for you.

 

"We are going to remand you into custody in the care of the local authority and we are going to send this case up to Crown Court this afternoon."
