A grandmother from Northampton has admitted being in charge of an American pit bull dog which killed her 6 month-old baby granddaughter.

Susan Aucott, 55, was looking after Molly Mae Wotherspoon when the dog, called Bruiser, carried out the attack.

At Northampton Crown Court this morning, Ms Aucott (pictured, right & face covered), of Alfred Street, Northampton, pleaded guilty to being in charge of a dangerously out of control dog which caused injury resulting in death.

She will be sentenced after the trial of Molly Mae's 23 year-old mother, Claire Riley of Merrydale Square, Southfields, Northampton.

She denies being the owner of a dangerously out of control dog which caused injury, resulting in death. The trial is due to begin on Monday.

Molly Mae died on 3 October 2014 following the dog attack at her mother's then home in Morning Star Road, Daventry. She was rushed to hospital where she died from severe blood loss from head wounds. The dog was put down at the scene.
