Cary Titford, 16, was found dead at her home in Newtown, Powys, Wales-Welsh News Agency.

The two parents were charged with manslaughter after allegedly allowing their daughter to become morbidly obese.

It is believed that this is the first case of this kind, when 16-year-old Kaylea Titford’s parents were charged with manslaughter and appeared in court on Tuesday after killing their children and vulnerable people. ..

A teenage girl with a disability was found dead in October 2020 at her home in Newtown, Powys, Wales.

Between March 24th and October 11th, 2020, Cary’s father, Arun Titford, 44, and his mother, Sarah Lloyd Jones, 39, need a meal in Colwyn, Newtown. It is said that it was not possible to satisfy the condition reliably, leading to morbid obesity.

Nor does it guarantee that she is well exercising, in good health, in a safe and hygienic environment, in good physical health, or in need of reasonable medical assistance. The accusation alleges.

The pair appeared in the Welshpool Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, wearing a face mask and standing together at the dock. They spoke only to confirm their name, age and address, but did not enter any petition.

The prosecution’s Helen Tench urged both defendants to continue conditional bail and not contact anyone under the age of 18. They will appear in the Criminal Court on April 14.

This case is believed to be the first time parents have been charged with such a crime.

In 2014, two parents were arrested on suspicion of atrocities and neglect in an obese child. A 49-year-old man and a 44-year-old woman from King’s Lynn, Norfolk, were cross-examined by police and released on bail for caring for their children.

At the time of another incident, Norfolk police said intervention at this level was “very rare” and only occurred if other attempts to protect the child failed.

The 11-year-old boy in this case was reportedly 5 feet 1 inch tall, 15 stones, and had a body mass index (BMI) of 41.8.

“When dealing with delicate issues such as obesity and child neglect, the officers of the unit’s Child Abuse Investigation Unit work closely with their partners and work closely with both healthcare and social services to deal with them. We make sure that action is appropriate and necessary to do so, “Norfolk police said in 2014.

However, the proceedings against Norfolk’s parents were withdrawn and they were not prosecuted.
