A FORMER Huddersfield woman who secretly buried her stillborn baby in the grounds of 17th century house in West Yorkshire and then went missing for several years will not be sentenced until next year.
Angela Owen, 47, was due to have her case dealt with by a judge at Bradford Crown Court next Friday, but her case was listed today (FRI) because a psychiatric report will not be ready in time. In September Owen, who now lives in Glastonbury, pleaded guilty to concealing the birth of her baby boy and preventing the lawful burial of a corpse.
Police launched a major investigation after the infant's body was found wrapped in a bin-liner in the grounds of The Howroyd, Krumlin Road, Barkisland, in July 2006. Full story in tomorrow's Examiner.
