Woman denies killing her baby son who died after a television fell on top of him

A woman has pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter of her baby son after a television fell on top of him.

Natalie McMillan, 24, of Dirkhill Road, Bradford, denied a charge of manslaughter when she appeared before Preston Crown Court.

She also pleaded not guilty to an offence of child cruelty.

Edward Hanratty, 40 and formerly of Brighouse, now of Bradford, was also charged with child cruelty and he too denies the offence.

Four-month-old Kian McMillan was taken to hospital with head injuries following the incident at his home in Scarlett Street, Burnley, on December 6 last year.

He was transferred from the Royal Blackburn Hospital to the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital but died the next day.

Both were granted bail ahead of their trial on December 11.
