Mother to face trial over death of her baby

A 21-year-old woman is to go on trial accused of murdering her baby daughter. Amelia Lilly Sultan-Curtis, who was five months old, died last October after being taken to Hull Royal Infirmary.

Her mother, Natasha Sultan, appeared at a brief hearing at Hull Crown Court today where she pleaded not guilty to a single charge of murder. Sultan, of Welton Grove, Hull, was told by a judge that she will go on trial on November 11. She was granted bail pending her trial.
