Dad denies killing his teenage daughter, 16, by letting her become morbidly obese | The Sun

A DAD is facing trial after he denied killing his teen daughter by letting her become morbidly obese.

Kaylea Titford, 16, was discovered dead by mum Sarah Lloyd-Jones at her home in Newton, Wales, on October 10, 2020.

Dad Alun Titford has denied manslaughter and causing or allowing the death of a child.

The charge states that between March 24 and October 11, 2020, Titford failed to ensure Kaylea's dietary needs were met, leading to morbid obesity.

He also allegedly did not "ensure she got enough exercise, was in a hygienic condition, had a safe and hygienic environment, her physical health was maintained, or that reasonable medical help was sought".

Titford appeared at Mold Crown Court today where a jury was selected ahead of his trial tomorrow.

Kaylea's mum Sarah Lloyd-Jones has admitted manslaughter by gross negligence and causing the teen's death.

An inquest previously heard how Kaylea suffered from "multiple medical issues" and was immobile.

A cause of death was given as "inflammation and infection in extensive areas of ulceration arising from obesity and its complications in a girl with spina bifida and hydrocephalus (water on the brain)".

Coroner Graeme Hughes adjourned the inquest until the conclusion of the criminal investigation.
