A mother who pleaded guilty to murdering her baby son six months before she killed her young daughter will be sentenced today (Friday, April 15).

Lesley Dunford initially pleaded guilty to the 2003 murder of seven-month-old Harley while living in Camber at a hearing in January before withdrawing her plea in February.

But in March, the 37-year-old reinstated her guilty plea.

Dunford was jailed for seven years in June, 2012, for the manslaughter of her three-year-old daughter Lucy in 2004.
