A woman will face trial over the death of nine-month-old baby who fell ill at a nursery.
Genevieve Meehan suffered a ‘medical episode’ at Tiny Toes Children’s Day Nursery in Cheadle, Greater Manchester, on May 9, last year. She was taken to hospital but later died.
She entered not guilty pleas to charges of unlawful act manslaughter and child cruelty and is due face trial on April 15, next year.
A further hearing will also take place on December 21.
The public gallery was packed by members of Genevieve’s family and Roughley’s parents were also in court.
In a statement at the time of the tragedy, Genevieve’s family said: ‘On the afternoon of May 9, 2022 our world turned very dark.
‘We are devastated beyond words at the loss of our beloved Genevieve. She was so wanted and so treasured. Her absence is the wound that will never heal.
‘Genevieve was not just a baby. She was a wonderful, unique and special person.’
