A 54-year-old woman has been jailed for killing her mother in Cottam.Advertisement
Ann Lupton, of Cedar Avenue, Stoke on Trent, admitted killing her mother Marie Hothersall at an address in Cottam in July last year.
83-year-old Marie died at Royal Preston Hospital in September.
Lupton was charged with murder after a post mortem examination, however her guilty plea to manslaughter was accepted earlier this month.
She was sentenced to 16 months in prison, minus the time she has spent on remand at Liverpool Crown Court.
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.”
