Mum Admits Killing 20-Month-Old Baby Before Fleeing To Uganda

A mum has admitted murdering her baby daughter before fleeing to Uganda. The body of 20-month-old Sarah Dahane was found at Angela Whitworth's home in Bicester, Oxfordshire, on 16 May 2013.

On the day the little girl was discovered, Whitworth, 44, flew to Nairobi in Kenya, before travelling on to Uganda.

She was arrested on 9th of March this year in a joint operation between Thames Valley Police and the Ugandan authorities.

Two weeks before she was detained, Thames Valley Police had offered a £10,000 reward to try and track her down.

Appearing at the Old Bailey from Bronzefield prison, Whitworth, wearing a lime green T-shirt with a black pattern pleaded guilty to murdering her daughter on 15 May 2013.

Mr Justice Saunders said she will be sentenced on October 4th when she faces a life sentence.
