A UK mom has admitted to killing her teenage daughter by allowing her to become morbidly obese.
Sarah Lloyd-Jones, 39, pleaded guilty to gross negligence manslaughter and allowing the death of a child for failing to care for daughter Kaylea Titford, 16, according to Wales News Service.
The wheelchair-bound teen was found dead in bed in her family’s home in Wales in October 2020 — having suffered “multiple medical issues,” including spina bifida, the report said.
Both her parents were accused of allowing her to grow morbidly obese by not managing her diet and exercise, then failing to get her medical help when she clearly needed it, the outlet said.
In pleading guilty at the Dec. 12 hearing, Lloyd-Jones admitted in Mold crown court that it had been “reasonably foreseeable” that her actions would lead to an obvious risk of death.

A mother has admitted killing her 16-year-old daughter by allowing her to get so morbidly overweight.
Teenager Kaylea Titford died from health problems linked to her obesity – and was found dead in bed by her mother at the family home.
Father Alun Titford, 44, and mother Sarah Lloyd-Jones, 39, were charged with gross negligence manslaughter and causing or allowing the death of a child or vulnerable person.
Lloyd-Jones changed her plea to admit manslaughter of Kaylea. Alun Titford has denied the charge.
She admitted breaching the care of duty for her disabled daughter and it was ‘reasonably foreseeable’ that it gave rise to a serious and obvious risk of death.
