Parents admit killing baby daughter

The parents of a nine-month-old girl have admitted unlawfully killing her.

Brian Kandare, 29, and Precious Kandare, 37, of Wednesfield, West Midlands, entered guilty pleas on the day their trial was due to begin at Nottingham Crown Court.

Their daughter Rebecca Kandare died shortly after being taken to Wolverhampton's New Cross Hospital on January 6 last year.

Brian, also known as Ngonidzashe, wore a grey jumper in the dock and sat next to Precious, who wore a mustard suit jacket.

Both spoke only to confirm their names and their guilty pleas.

Mr Justice Edis said he would sentence the pair tomorrow.

The defendants had previously been charged with the murder of Rebecca, which they denied.

They accepted the charge of manslaughter at a brief hearing at court on Monday.
