Dad Faces Court Over Teen Daughter's Drug Death

A man has appeared in court charged with the manslaughter of his teenage daughter after he allegedly supplied the girl with MDMA.

Chloe Wilkes, 17, died after she fell ill at her home in Ashford, Kent, on July 27.

Her father Jason Wilkes, 44, is accused of manslaughter and supplying a class A drug.

He was remanded in custody on Monday after appearing at Canterbury Crown Court for a preliminary hearing.

He is expected to enter a plea during his next hearing on November 3.

An inquest into Chloe's death was opened earlier this month.
