A mother who drowned her three-year-old daughter in the bath after her marriage broke down has been found guilty of murder.

Claire Colebourn told jurors at Winchester Crown Court that she killed Bethan at their home in Fordingbridge, Hampshire, after she split with her husband Michael, but denied murder, saying she wanted to “save” and “protect” the youngster from her father and his family.

In summing up the case before sending jurors to retire on Friday morning, Judge Johannah Cutts QC instructed them to try the case “dispassionately”, and to consider an alternative charge of manslaughter if they felt Colebourn only meant to cause Bethan “some harm, but not really serious injury”.

Adrianna Elaine Hutto (September 16, 1999 - August 8, 2007) was a 7-year-old American girl who lived in Esto, Florida. On August 8, 2007, Adrianna's mother , Amanda E. Lewis, made a 911 call stating that she had found her daughter in the family's pool and she was not breathing.

She said: “The Crown say that when she killed Bethan, she intended to do so.

“The defence say she was in a highly emotional state at the time and that her intent was to ‘save’ Bethan.

“It is important that when you assess the evidence, you do so dispassionately. Sympathy, disapproval or emotion of any kind does not assist in deciding if this case is sufficiently proven.”

Spanish-born teen strangled and mother was 'likely throttled' in murder-suicide A Spanish-born teenager found dead at a flat in Northern Ireland was strangled, police have said.

'Obsession with perfection': Mother who drowned her six-month-old daughter in the bath because A woman has been found guilty of murdering her baby who she mistakenly believed had dwarfism Penn Badgley shuts down Twitter users who admit they're attracted to the very creepy STALKER he

An Ontario mother who drowned her two young daughters in the midst of a custody battle is guilty of two counts of first-degree murder . Campione's whole body started shaking after the jury delivered its verdict and the woman broke down crying. She then sat down in the prisoner's box and put her head

The alarm was raised by the defendant’s mother on 19 October 2017, when she arrived at Colebourn’s home and found the defendant in a diabetic coma having apparently tried several suicide methods, while Bethan was discovered dead in a downstairs bedroom, having been drowned around 14 hours earlier.

Prosecutor Kerry Maylin said: “Bethan had been woken from her bed (in the early hours of 19 October), led to the bathroom, helped into or put into the bath.

″(Bethan was) forcibly held down with her arms beneath her body, not fighting against her mother as she held her under.

“However sad, however tragic, Claire Colebourn intended for Bethan to die.

“She may very well have intended that she die too. But she didn’t.

“Bethan died at the hands of her mother, because that’s what her mother intended.”

Defending, Karim Khalil described his client as “a woman in emotional turmoil” whose mind “had become entirely consumed with looking back” on her relationship with Colebourn and “distorting it”.

He said: “She was at ‘rock bottom’ but told police (in subsequent interview) she wanted to ‘protect’ Bethan.

“She accepted what happened, that she had done it (drowned Bethan).

“Was she intending her daughter to be killed in the sense of being murdered by her? That is for you to decide.

“She said in evidence: ‘I had a complete and utter breakdown’.”

Khalil said the defence case was not that Colebourn was innocent.

“But we say she should not be described as a murderer,” he added.

“Whatever your verdict, she will receive a very significant prison sentence.

“But that will not be the real sentence. It is that for however long she remains alive, she will wrestle with, try to understand and grieve over that she did it. She did it, we say, in a state of emotion.”
