Mum 'drowned disabled daughter'

Full Article:

A mother drowned her daughter in the bath because she felt unable to accept her child's disability, a court heard.
Joanne Hill, 32, from Connah's Quay, Flintshire, arrived at hospital with the body of Naomi, four, at least eight hours after she had died.
Naomi had a mild form of cerebral palsy which affected her mobility.
She denies murder. The prosecution at Chester Crown Court said her defence would argue she was guilty of manslaughter but not murder.
The court heard that on 26 November last year, Ms Hill picked Naomi up from a childminder.
