A part-time model accused of killing his two daughters appeared in court.

Louise Porton, 22, is accused of killing three-year-old Lexi Draper and then killing Scarlett Vaughan, 16 months, two weeks later.

Lexi died in the hospital after the paramedics replied that she was found unconscious at her home in Rugby, Warwickshire, in the early hours of January 15th last year, police said.

Scarlett died on February 1, 2018, after the paramedics responded to a relationship that had fallen ill, the agents added.

Porton, of Skiddaw, Rugby, Warwickshire, appeared today at the Warwick Crown Court.

Porton, wearing a white cardigan, appeared in custody on the dock accompanied by a security officer, and spoke only to give his name, date of birth and confirm his nationality of British whites.

His case was postponed for a hearing at the Birmingham court on March 4th.

A three week trial date was set for July to be heard by a High Court judge.

Judge Andrew Lockhart, QC, said to the defendant: "Mrs. Porton, you will be tried in Birmingham, from July 8th.

"If that date is destined to move, you will listen to your lawyers.

"Your case will be listed for a further hearing on March 4, when you will be before the court and you will have to declare him not guilty or guilty of accusation."

He added: "You are in custody, go with the officer, please."

Porton appeared on Saturday at the Leamington judiciary, but the magistrates felt that the charges against her were too serious to be dealt with and passed the case to the Crown Court.
