"Following a lengthy and complex investigation by West Yorkshire Police into the death of a four and a half year old child, I have today authorised West Yorkshire Police to charge a 42 year old woman with manslaughter and preventing the burial of a corpse.  I have also authorised that she be charged with five counts of child neglect.   I have further authorised that a 24 year old man be charged with preventing the burial of a corpse.   Both defendants will appear before Bradford Magistrates on 12 March 2013.".
