The Nelson father of a murdered girl has collapsed and died just days before the start of her alleged killer’s trial.
Paul Parkinson (48) was the estranged dad of Jayden Parkinson whose body was discovered in someone else’s grave. Her body was discovered in an Oxfordshire graveyard after a major murder manhunt.
It is believed that Mr Parkinson suffered a fatal heart attack after travelling south for the trial which was due to commence this Friday at Oxford Crown Court.
On Friday, Jayden’s former boyfriend, 22-year-old Ben Blakeley stands trial before a judge and jury, accused of murdering her.
