Jo par­ents face killer

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE PAR­ENTS of Joanna Yeates have come face to face for the first with their daugh­ter’s killer.

David and Teresa Yeates were at a pre-trial hear­ing for Vin­cent Tabak, a Dutch en­gi­neer who has ad­mit­ted the man­slaugh­ter of 25year-old Miss Yeates but de­nies her mur­der.

Grey­ing Tabak, 33, was es­corted into the dock of Bris­tol Crown Court by four guards.

Miss Yeates’ mother oc­ca­sion­ally looked from the pub­lic gallery to­wards Tabak, who sat hunched in the dock and spoke only to con­firm his name.

The charge states that Tabak “un­law­fully killed” Miss Yeates be­tween De­cem­ber 16 and De­cem­ber 19.

The case was ad­journed un­til the Oc­to­ber 4 trial.
