The mother of a baby killed by a dog in Daventry has appeared in court.

Molly Mae Wotherspoon died following the attack by an American pit bull at a house in Morning Star Road, Daventry, on October 3 last year.

Her mother, Claire Riley, aged 22, of West Cotton Close, Northampton, appeared at Northampton Magistrates’ Court this morning and entered no plea to a charge under the Dangerous Dogs Act, having a dog that was dangerously out of control.

Molly’s grandmother Susan Aucott, aged 55, from Northampton also entered no plea to the same charge at magistrates’ court two weeks ago.

Both women will appear at Northampton Crown Court later this month.
