Dover man Gary Sturt admits killing mother

A 30-year-old man has admitted killing his mother, whose body was discovered at a house in Kent.

Gary Sturt, of Clarendon Street, Dover, denied the murder of 49-year-old Annette Sturt, in a hearing on Monday at Canterbury Crown Court.

Court officials said he pleaded guilty to manslaughter under diminished responsibility - a plea that was accepted by the prosecution.

Sturt is due to be sentenced at the same court on Tuesday.

He was arrested in May this year after his mother's body was found at her home in Prescott Close, Guston, near Dover.
