A COUPLE accused of killing their baby daughter will stand trial in June next year.
Tyler Vallance and Jessica Wiggins - who is now pregnant with another child - are accused of killing two-month-old Isabella Vallance last year.
The pair appeared at Worcester Crown Court earlier today, October 28, where it was decided that a five-week trial will begin on June 4 with a High Court Judge.
Isabella was taken to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch after being injured at a house in Redditch on December 7 last year, before being transferred to Birmingham Children's Hospital. She died five days later.
Vallance, aged 20, is charged with murder, while Wiggins, 19, is accused of causing or allowing the death of a child.
They are both also charged with ill treatment or neglect of a child between November 5 and December 7 last year.
Vallance was remanded in custody and Wiggins was released on conditional bail until their next hearing, on December 9.
