Mother of baby mauled by dog taken to hospital and sentencing adjourned
A mother who was due to be sentenced after her six-month-old baby was mauled to death by a dog has been rushed to hospital and the case adjourned.
Claire Riley, 23, was treated by paramedics before the hearing began on Friday morning at Northampton Crown Court.
Her daughter Molly Mae Wotherspoon was killed by the dog at the family home in Daventry, Northamptonshire, in October 2014.
Riley was due to be sentenced after admitting owning a dangerously out of control dog at a previous court hearing.
Susan Aucott, 55, also of Northampton, admitted being in charge of a dangerously out of control dog and was in court for sentencing.
Mrs Justice Carr adjourned the sentencing for both defendants until September 15.
