A mother has pleaded guilty to manslaughter following the death of her baby.

Danielle Massey admitted the offence at Teesside Crown Court on Tuesday following the death of seven-month-old Charlie Goodall at their home in February 2022. The 31-year-old also pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis.

On the afternoon of February 16, 2022, police were alerted by paramedics to a house in West Chilton Terrace, in Chilton, County Durham, where a Charlie was found unresponsive in the bath. He was airlifted to the Royal Victoria Infirmary, in Newcastle, but sadly died shortly after arrival.

Following this week’s hearing, the case was adjourned until July 26.

“Our thoughts are with Charlie’s family,” said a statement from Durham Constabulary.
