Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A YOUNG mother who smoth­ered her two-year-old daugh­ter has ad­mit­ted mur­der part-way through a Crown Court trial.

Cody-Anne Jack­son had de­nied killing Macey Ho­gan af­ter send­ing the tod­dler’s fa­ther a photo of her and a mes­sage read­ing: “Sorry, just thought you de­served one last pic­ture of her.”

A sui­cide note writ­ten by Jack­son ( above), 20, was found af­ter she called 999 on Oc­to­ber 10 last year.

A court heard she had a his­tory of self harm and was an­gry and re­sent­ful to­wards Macey’s fa­ther af­ter the break­down of their re­la­tion­ship.

Po­lice smashed their way into Jack­son’s ter­raced home in Stoke-on-Trent af­ter she told emer­gency con­trollers she had been stabbed.

The prose­cu­tor told the court: “The de­fen­dant acted on her stated in­ten­tion to kill Macey but failed to fol­low through with sui­cide.”

Jack­son will be sen­tenced on July 27 at Stafford Crown Court. SLOTH sex takes un­der two min­utes
