Man admits killing his Humberside PCSO partner

A 62-year-old man has admitted killing his Police Community Support Officer partner.

Edward Scott was due to go on trial on Wednesday accused of murdering Carole Forth, 56.

But when he appeared at Sheffield Crown Court, he pleaded guilty to manslaughter and this plea was accepted by prosecutors.

Judge Roger Thomas QC told Scott he will be sentenced in June.

No details of Ms Forth's death on December 23, 2018, at a property in Woodhall Street, Hull, were given in court during a brief hearing on Wednesday.

Judge Thomas told Scott reports needed to be prepared before he could be sentenced, but he said:

He gave Scott, of Smook Hills Road, Hollym, East Yorkshire, conditional bailand told him to appear again for sentence at Sheffield Crown Court on June 26.

After Scott was charged last year, Detective Chief Inspector Christine Calvert said:

Humberside Police said she had worked for the force for 12 years and was based at Preston Road police station, in Hull.
