A 54 YEAR old woman has today (Friday 24 January) been jailed after she admitted killing her mother in Preston.

Ann Lupton, of Cedar Avenue, Stoke on Trent was given 16 months in prison, minus the time already served on remand, at Liverpool Crown Court.

Lupton was initially charged with attempted murder following an assault on her mother, Marie Hothersall, at an address in Cottam, near Preston on 24 July last year.

Sadly, the 83 year old died at Royal Preston Hospital on 19 September 2013.

Following a Home Office post mortem examination Lupton was charged with murder, however, the Crown accepted her guilty plea to manslaughter earlier this month.

Detective Inspector Kevin McLean, of Preston CID, said: “This was an absolutely tragic case for all concerned which has left a family completely devastated.

“My thoughts are very much with Marie’s family at this difficult time. I appreciate they will never be able to get over her death, but I can only hope that they can now begin to move forward with their lives.”

Anybody with any information can contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org.

No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
