Charges dropped against Cleckheaton baby death couple

Have your say

A couple from Scholes have been cleared of killing their four-month-old daughter after the case against them was dropped.

Lucy Damen, 19 and Daniel David Sheard, 21, pleaded not guilty at Leeds Crown Court on Friday to the manslaughter of Kayleigh Mai Sheard on September 30 last year.

They also denied a second charge of familial homicide by causing or allowing the death of their daughter at their home in Foldings Avenue, Scholes, Cleckheaton knowing she was “at significant risk of serious physical harm.”
