Court adjournment for baby death couple

THE case of a couple accused of killing their baby daughter has been adjourned until February.

Tyler Vallance and Jessica Wiggins are accused of killing two-month-old Isabella Vallance last year.

They were due to enter pleas at Worcester Crown Court on Monday but will now appear on February 14. A provisional trial date has been set for June 4.

Isabella was taken to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch after being injured at a house in the town on December 7 last year, before being transferred to Birmingham Children's Hospital. She died just five days later.

Vallance, aged 20, is charged with murder, while Wiggins, 19, of the same address, is accused of causing or allowing the death of a child.

They are both also charged with ill treatment or neglect of a child between November 5 and December 7 last year.

Vallance was remanded in custody and Wiggins was released on conditional bail until their next hearing.
