Mother in Court over death of children

7 October 2010, 12:29

A woman appeared at the Old Bailey today accused of killing her two children, whose bodies were found in the boot of a car.

Fiona Morag Donnison, 43, a former City worker, of Marshwood Road, Lightwater, Surrey, is charged with two murders.

Three-year-old Harry and two-year-old Elise Donnison were found in separate holdalls in the boot of a Nissan car near the former family home in Heathfield, East Sussex, in January.

The brother and sister appeared to have been asphyxiated.

Donnison, who had short, dark hair and wore a black hooded coat, spoke only to answer to her name.

She was remanded in custody to face a four-week trial at Lewes Crown Court next March.

Another hearing is due to take place in December.
