The mother of a toddler who died from a drugs overdose has pleaded guilty to causing or allowing the death of a child.
Paramedics were called on the 29th of May last year to a house in Wolverhampton where 23-month-old Daniel Jones was pronounced dead. A police investigation later revealed he had died from a heroin overdose.
His mother, Emma Bradburn, 33, pleaded guilty to the charge today at Wolverhampton Crown Court. The child's father, Simon Jones, 29, pleaded not guilty to the same charge.
Both defendants pleaded not guilty to a separate charge of manslaughter in the case. They will now face a trial that is expected to begin in the summer and last two weeks.
