TWO parents accused of killing their 16-year-old daughter by letting her become morbidly obese appeared in court today.
Kaylea Titford was found dead in bed at her home in Powys, Wales, in October 2020.
Her dad Alun Titford, 44, and mum Sarah Lloyd-Jones, 39, have been accused of failing to ensure Kaylea’s needs were met – leading to morbid obesity.
They also allegedly failed to ensure she got enough exercise and was in a hygienic condition and didn’t seek “reasonable medical help”.
The pair were charged with gross negligence manslaughter and causing or allowing the death of a child or vulnerable person.
The charges relate to incidents between March 24 and October 11, 2020
The pair appeared before Welshpool Magistrates’ Court today.
Both Alun and Sarah stood together in the dock wearing face masks.
They spoke only to confirm their names, ages and address but did not enter any pleas.
Prosecutor Helen Tench asked both defendants to remain on conditional bail and not to have contact with anyone under the age of 18.
They will next appear before Mold Crown Court on April 14, 2022.
