Rickets Baby Death: Father Admits Manslaughter
The father of a five-month-old baby who died of acute rickets has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
Nkosiyapha Kunene, 36, is accused of killing Ndingeko Kunene in June 2012.
His wife, Virginia Kunene, 32, joined him in the dock at the court in central London.
She had admitted the same charge at an earlier hearing.
Judge Mr Justice Singh told the Zimbabwe-born couple he was "considering all options".
"I do not think anyone should go away with any illusions about that," he said.
"The seriousness of the offence of which the life of a baby is lost will be apparent to everyone so I must bear that in mind," he added.
The case was adjourned and the pair, who are on conditional bail, will be sentenced on February 28.
