Devon: Woman Charged With Toddler's Murder
A 40-year-old woman has been charged with the murder of a toddler whose body was found at a home in Modbury.
Angela Vane has been charged with killing the two-year-old and will appear before Torquay Magistrates' Court on Monday.
Officers were called to a property in the Devon village at around 8.20am on Saturday after the child's body was found by a member of the public.
As well as carrying out house-to-house enquiries, police have also begun initial forensic work - although a post-mortem examination has yet to take place.
Police have said it will be carried out in the next few days by a Home Office pathologist or specialist paediatric pathologist.
In the meantime, detectives have re-appealed for information following the boy's death.
Devon and Cornwall Police say they want to hear from witnesses who may have seen a woman in Modbury in the early hours of yesterday morning.
"We are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen a woman walking between Modbury and Wrangaton between 2am and 8.15am on January 19," a force spokesman said.
"The woman in question is described as having fair, shoulder-length hair and wearing a black jacket, black jeans and green Wellington boots."
what do you think?
Not another poor little child god bless you son xxxx
To those who gave me thumbs down you don't like me that's fine. So are you glad this little lad is dead. Come out and say so you are so pathetic hiding behind this forum.
I agree with you it appears that we have the obligatory thumbs down brigade no matter what you post . SAD SAD PEOPLE nothing better in their lives.
Ignore them Diane. If they feel the need to give a thumbs down based purely on not agreeing with your previous posts in other topics,then I say they are the ones who need to grow up!
They are dispicable.to thumbs down a comment as that just because they are bored or dont like you.ignore them.
Diane it happens to me every time i post anything. There is no point drawing attention to it, just ignore it
Diane I posted an RIP message about a little girl who had been shot in Barbados and got thumbs down would you believe. There are some seriously sick people out there.
Valerie, I would sad individuals. Normally I ignore it but on a subject like this it makes my blood boil. Can't help but react
I think it's fair enough you react, Diane. Far too many people here, I have noticed, bear grudges from previous debtes and vote down regardless of the topic of the current. 7 thumbs up now - I think balance is restored!
I have not given you a thumbs down Diane but perhaps the reason some have is not as a reaction to this or previous comments but because of your mention of god. Many people find it impossible to believe in such a diety when the world is filled with so many ills. I would however fight to protect your right to your beliefs.
Oliver I will nobody will make me change my views
i dont like all this" your with.the angels stuff" i find it embarrassing, but what youve written diane is ok.
It's no big secret that I don't particularly like you Diane. I find you ignorant, judgemental and hateful. However, like with anyone on here who I feel similarly about, I wouldn't vote you down for a comment like that.
