THE JURY is due to go out today in the trial of a woman accused of murdering a Doncaster school girl on Valentine’s Day.

Hannah Bonser, 26, is today in the eighth day of a trial at Sheffield Crown Court accused of stabbing 13-year-old Casey-Lyanne Kearney to death.

The McAuley Catholic High School pupil had just got off a bus to meet a friend in the school holidays when she was attacked. She managed to stagger into the park and dial 999 herself.

Doctors at Doncaster Royal Infirmary battled for several hours to try and save Casey but she was pronounced dead later that day.

Bonser, of Cusworth House, St James’ Street, Hyde Park, has claimed to have no recollection of the events of February 14, other than screams and voices in her head.

She admits killing Casey but denies murder.

The trial continues.
