Parents accused of killing boy, two
The parents of a two-year boy have appeared in court accused of killing him.
Sonia Britton, 35, and Jamie Green, 32, appeared at Bristol Magistrates' Court accused of the manslaughter of Jayden Lee Green between August 20 and 22 this year at their house in Bell Hill Road, Bristol.
The couple, who spoke only to confirm their personal details, are also accused of causing and allowing the death of a child.
The court heard they were already in custody facing charges of wilful assault on a child between September 18 2009 and August 21 this year.
The couple, who remained impassive in the dock throughout the short hearing, were remanded in custody to appear at Bristol Crown Court on October 7.
