The partner of a woman accused of murdering her newborn baby seconds after she gave birth said he was so engrossed in his X-box game he did not question when she asked for a pair of scissors.*speechless*
Tunstill, of Wellington Court, Burnley, denies murder after the body of her infant daughter Mia Kelly was found in a kitchen bin with more than 15 stab wounds.*still speechless*
Mr Kelly told Preston Crown Court he only learned a baby had been born when he returned home from work on Monday January 16 to find police officers searching the bins.Mr Kelly doesn't seem like the sharpest pair of scissors in the drawer, it must be said...
When she went into the bathroom on January 14, suffering severe stomach pains, he believed it was 'part of the process', he told the court.
In a statement to the police, Mr Kelly, said: “I know it’s difficult to believe but Rachel deals with everything herself.
“She takes all control at all times and I’m better just staying out of the way.Ah, modern man. Marvel at the sight!
“Every 20 minutes or so I did go and check on her and ask her if she was OK and if she needed anything.
“I asked her if she had thought of ringing a doctor and at one point she did say she might have to. That is all that was said about it.But never let it be said he's incapable of insight!
“Obviously with hindsight I should have rung an ambulance.”Ya think..?!?
