The boyfriend of a 22-year-old mother-to-be who died after being hit by a car appeared in court yesterday having been charged with death by dangerous driving.

Daniel Dutfield, of Trinity Crescent, Tooting, has not yet entered a plea to the charge after a hearing at Croydon Crown Court on Monday, July 21.

Jessica Fenner, 22, who was weeks away from giving birth to a baby girl when tragedy struck in Glastonbury Road, St Helier, died from her injuries on Saturday, July 5.

Mr Dutfield was remanded in custody until a plea and case management hearing at the same court on Monday, September 15.
